Military Police Command Commander Lieutenant General Chou Kuang-Chi went over to CiPing First Village the other day to inspect the renovations of the dormitories. When on site, Commander Chou pointed out that, in order to provide spouses of military police officers a safe and comfortable living space, the Military Police Command has set aside a budget starting from 2017 till 2023 to handle the renovations of 120 dormitory units. So far, renovations of 110 units have been completed. Commander Chou expected that when the renovations are completed in the future, these spaces can provide spouses (and children) an excellent and relaxing environment so that the soldiers can focus on their military services without any worry, which in turn enables them to concentrate on the primary task of military training, thereby effectively elevating the overall combat strength of the unit.
Commander Chou stressed that the Business Unit should treat the overall quality of the renovations as if the renovations are done for their own homes. Specifically, the renovations should be done rigorously as well as take the needs of spouses into the consideration. Also, operations such as procurement, tender, execution and acceptance that are related to renovations should be conducted strictly complying to laws and regulations. Commander Chou further reminded the unit that during the construction period, strict supervision should be applied to ensure that the construction workers are performing the constructions in accordance with the laws while also following the design drawing. In addition, the unit should properly conduct construction maintenance, landscaping and air pollution prevention measures so as to maintain the living standards of the current residents whilst avoiding the occurrence of any incident which affects operational safety. Lastly, the unit is responsible of ensuring that the renovations can be effectively completed as scheduled and in the quality they have set for.
