Update | Aug 2016 – Excavation for basement approaching completion

Alhamdulillah suma Alhamdulillah, we are humbled to finally write another update on the Project with some good news! The necessary paperwork and coordination with relevant Authorities took much longer than anticipated but now the work on site has been initiated.

Now that the weather is clearing up a bit (although we expect another spell of rains before Monsoon is finally over!), the Contractor has mobilized his resources. The heavy machinery (excavator and dumpers) have been put into action. Excavation for basement is nearing completion. The area of basement is around 19,000 sq.ft. In parallel, the on-site accommodation for the labors etc. is being constructed.

The next step would be providing a bed of compacted gravel, 2 ft. thick, which would serve to increase the bearing capacity of the soil. This bed, in turn would be supporting a raft, 40 inch thick with 10 inch thick RCC Retaining walls.

We would really appreciate your feedback and continuous support. It is OUR project and, we believe, TOGETHER we can build it. Your contributions, whether financial, material, technical or in the form of moral support, are equally invaluable to us and would serve a lot to boost our morale as well as strengthen our resolve, Insha Allah.

Needless to say, this is just the beginning and we are foreseeing a very unique Project which would be challenging and rewarding at the same time, Insha Allah.  We have experienced quite a few hurdles during the initial paperwork and coordination with the civic authorities and this is by no means the end of the challenges! But we are confident that with the help of Allah (SWT) and your continued support, we will be able to turn this dream into a reality, Insha Allah.
