There is a reason why
Insular Life remains one of the leading insurance companies in the
Philippines even after a century of service: its ability to evolve
with the changing times. As the iconic Insular Life Building
along Ayala Avenue re-opened for leasing after a two-year
renovation period, the company proved its status as a true gem
among the Makati skyline.
Classic and Dynamic
Gracing Makati CBD's bustling streets since 1962, the Insular Life
Building is one of the oldest structures in Ayala corner Paseo. The
landmark unveiled newer facilities and better interior for its
clients. It has also opened its doors and stepped on to the next
level technology-wise. The Insular Life Building proves that it is
equipped to meet the demands of doing business even in the digital
During the inauguration of the renovated Insular Building, Insular
Life CEO Nina Aguas said the refurbished building has been designed
to be conducive to the modern times.
"As we are on the brink of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, aside
from aesthetics and function, we addressed the need for
technology," Aguas said
"Information technology [IT], such as the Internet and mobile
phones compel us to respond, so we imagined a space, which
integrates technology with modern elegance. Aside from the
touch-screen monitors and other gadgets in different areas, this
building is equipped to capably handle the IT demands of
21st-century enterprises," she added.
The 14-floor building is retrofitted to handle the requirements of
modern enterprises and businesses and is well-equipped with the
latest equipment and facilities, hi-speed elevators, new fire
alarms, and detection systems, VRF air conditioning systems, a
5-story parking building, and gen sets for back-up power. It also
boasts a 260-seater multi-purpose ballroom for the most prestigious
of functions. Aside from being a Grade A development, Insular Life
Building Makati is also PEZA accredited.
Certified Gold LEED
Just recently, the Insular Life building in Makati has also been
certified Gold by the US Green Building Council under its
Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). This means
that its construction methods and materials, coupled with
energy-efficient equipment make it a sustainable building.
Moreover, the building and its occupants operationalize on lesser
water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
LEED is the globally recognized green building rating system in the
world that accredits buildings that follow a set of standards
towards a more sustainable and greener Philippines. It encourages
more buildings, community, and home projects to become healthy,
highly-efficient and cost-saving green estates.
Insular Life Building through the years
Immediately after Insular Life's headquarters has reopened its
doors, all of its 25,315 sqm gross floor area up for commercial
leasing has been fully occupied. Offices and commercial entities
such as BPI, Tim Hortons, and Union Bank are just some of the few
that wanted the prime location of the building.
Insular Life lives up to its name as one of one of the most
resilient and reliable names in the Philippines, not only as a
company but also through their iconic Insular Life Building in
