AIS H-11 Progress Report (March 2018)

  1. Activities Carried Out in till Date
  2. Alhamdulillah, Structure work is 100% complete and the scaffolding in main hall area (double height) is being removed. This is a very critical milestone as a significant area ( gymnasium / main hall ) is now available for works on allied services (primarily HVAC) as well as electrical and masonry works.

    Work on installation of porcelain tiles, electrical rooms, HVAC, plumbing, gas piping, doors, windows, skylights is well underway on all floors and all the requisite material have been procured or manufactured, as the case might be. Lights have been installed on two floors and paint work has commenced on Ground floor.

    Another key finishing item being pursued at this stage is the Decorative grill for which a reputed manufacturer in Qatar has been approached who has provided a design for the same. The grills would give a very unique outlook to the finished building and would reflect a mix of modern as well as traditional Islamic architecture. Close coordination is being done with Vendor to ensure that best quality product is available at the earliest.

    Keeping in view the CDA requirements, a well thought out fire safety component is being worked on. This includes illuminated exit signs, dedicated fire exits, fire alarms with central zoning control panel, fire hose reel cabinets, fire cylinders, dedicated water supply with fire pumps and 2hr fire rated steel doors.

    The overhead water tank is Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) of about 40,000 liter capacity and a well reputed vendor in Lahore has been approached for its manufacturing and installation. A formal P.O has been issued to him in this regard.

    To ensure that maximum space is available on the off-set areas, the electrical room and generator have been shifted to the front (closer to main WAPDA power supply). This has freed up a lot of space on the South side which can be more efficiently used for outdoor activities. Construction of electrical room has been prioritized and is underway to that the process if installation of WAPDA transformer may be persued alongside on going activities on site. Also, a septic tank for 50,000 liter capacity has been proposed and approved. This would ensure that the existing sewage system of CDA, which is in very poor condition, isn’t over stressed. The offset areas will be landscaped so they are put to best possible use in the limited space that is available to us. Design of boundary wall at front side has been shared with AIS Management for finalization so its architecture would be aligned with the rest of the building.

    Standard wooden doors and windows are also being prepared in parallel and would be installed at tail end of the Project when other activities, such as paint work have finalized.

    External brick cladding work is also well underway and is expected to be final by 3rd week of April 2018.

  3. Deviations
  4. Water filtration system has been discussed with a well-known vendor who would propose it’s lay out on roof top. The details of the system would be shared with Archcorp Structural Engineer who would advise whether it’s suitable for the given structural design of the roof slab.
