West Wing - Structure Complete

On Saturday (Sept 27th) the West Wing roof (4th level slab) was completed.  This is another major milestone for the project as all the shuttering will now be moved to the East Wing after Eid, at which time the exterior brick work can be started and the interior brick walls completed. Once the brick work is completed then Phase II interior finishing will start once funding for this next phase becomes available (electrical conduit, wall plaster, flooring, etc.). Structural work on the East wing will continue over the next 6 months.
