Description :

Construction czar David Consunji's wealth has rise alongside an increase in his DCMI Holdings' stock. Early foundation for his fortune: early gig as a concrete inspector. Laid real cornerstone in 1954, when he founded DMCI. It has built more than 500 buildings since. One particularly opulent offering: Taguig-based Acacia Estates. Son Isidro runs it all now; he hopes recent move into power pays off. Meanwhile, in January 2015, DMCI won a $52 million contract to extend Manila light rail.
