Under the agreement, the AFP 51st Engineering Brigade and the 355th Aviation Engineering Wing of the Philippine Air Force will provide the manpower, labor, and the general construction equipment and tools for the project.
CIAC was tasked to prepare the detailed engineering design and the period of completion of the said project.
