Demise of IFAWPCA Past President David M. Consunji of PCA (Philippines)


David M. Consunji (fondly called “DM”), founder of the DMCI Group of Companies and IFAWPCA Past President 1983-1984 passed away around noontime last Monday (September 4) surrounded by close family and relatives.  He was 95 years old.  A beloved husband and father, DM built landmarks and redefined cityscapes for generations of Filipinos.  He transformed the local construction industry by valuing not the quick profit but the satisfaction of doing one’s work well, honestly and proudly.


His remains lie in state at the Capilla de San Francisco of Santuario de San Antonio Parish, McKinley Road, Forbes Park in Makati City, and may be viewed starting Tuesday (September 5) until Friday (September 8).

Interment is scheduled on Saturday (September 9) at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City after the 9:30 a.m. Mass at Santuario de San Antonio.


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in DM’s honor to the UP Engineering Research and Development Foundation, Inc. and Orani Suhay Foundation, Inc.


You may kindly send your sympathies/condolences to the Consunji Family here at the IFAWPCA Secretariat’s email (ifawpca@ifawpca.org).  From hence, we will collate and forward them to the Consunji’s.
