Our Company Milestones


The foundation of HERO Construction and Development Corporation began with the aspirations of two young engineers, Engr. Herbert Diapolet and Engr. Rogin Ylaya, while they were completing their graduate degrees in Structural Engineering at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City. With a shared passion for the construction industry and a desire to make a difference in the built environment, they formalized their partnership by registering their business with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) under the name HD Engineers+Builders.


The first set of small-scale projects was awarded to the company.


Philippine Contractors Accreditation Board (PCAB), the regulatory arm of DTI in the construction sector, has awarded the company with Category D and Small B for government infrastructures.


Transformed company structure from sole proprietorship to corporation, HERO Construction and Development Corporation.


Today, HERO Construction and Development Corporation has evolved into a leading engineering design and construction firm, known for its innovative approach, sustainability and exceptional service. The company remains true to its roots and the core values of its founders and continues to be guided by the principle of "Quality construction, delivered on time."
