CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: JUNE 2020
The construction work recommenced in full force on the 20 th May 2020 after the COVID-19 control measures were eased.
More material has been delivered to the site. These are the scaffold parts and the plywood that will support the beams and floor slabs while the concrete is poured.
Some of material has been transferred to the upper zone.
The whole area was cleared when work began in May and construction continues in full force.
The steelwork for new footings has been installed to prepare for the pouring of the concrete.
We have started to construct the bracing beams for this building.
Areas for which footings are complete need to be backfilled.
CONSTRUCTION FORGES AHEAD
Now that soil protection measures are complete for some buildings, construction can speed up. We are now working on the second level bracing beams.
STEEL WORK INSPECTION
After the bracing beam form work has been installed, our engineer inspects the steel work, which is installed to reinforce the beams before the pouring of concrete.
The concrete pouring for the bracing beam form work. Since this building is located on the high ground, the concrete needs to be transferred from the lower zone by tower crane.
Once the bracing beams are dry, the form work is removed.
Construction continues with the installation of the steel bars for the columns.
The columns are installed after the third level bracing beams are complete and the concrete has been poured into the form work. These columns will support the first floor slab.
Once the concrete has properly dried, the form work will be taken out. The building is now ready for the first floor slab.
The bracing beams for this building are now complete. Next, the scaffold will be installed to support the first floor slab, which will house guest rooms.
