The last section of scaffolding is being dismantled today revealing the front elevation for the first time. The carving done last year by Lama Thubten can now be seen, including a magnificent large dorje adorning the centre of the front wall.
The railings on the roof parapets were recently completed. The final touch will be the insertion of auspicious symbols to the empty rectangular spaces. These are to be made and fitted to all the railings around both the last phase and this phase of the building.
The new concrete staircase accessing the first floor was cast today. This leaves one more stair to be cast at the west side near the Conference Centre.
The copper roofing will soon be completed; the first of two porches on the roof are now finished.
Internal partitions are currently being built forming the offices and Tibetan library on the first floor.
Windows will start to be fitted from Monday 4th April and by June it is hoped the building will be fully wind and watertight. Work will be continuing on drain laying and paving throughout the coming summer.
The next phase will include electrical, heating, plumbing and ventilation 1st fix. The partitions will be constructed and all work completed to achieve the functioning of the heating and some of the lighting.
This will involve the interior design for all rooms
in this phase and is a considerable amount of work for the building team to
organize and contract out to specialist businesses. We hope to be able to put all
this work out to tender and award contracts by August/September this year.
