السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
Alhamdulillah with help of Allah SWT, we finally received the permission to start the closing process from the Fire Marshal. Which means we can now start the final adjustments in the infrastructures, make necessary placements, close ceiling, finish bathrooms fixtures, start paint etc..
Tentative Opening Date: October 6th, 2018
With the inside closing, we will also be going deeper with the detention pond about four more feet to hold water for fire sprinkler system, add Mihrab, and add driveway from the main gate to connect the new parking in the back.
Last week we completed the following tasks:
- Mihrab: Finished Foundation. Cut stone to make it a part of the prayer hall
- Finishing up any additional electrical, low current wiring, testing CCTV, speakers adjustments on the ceiling fans, adjustments on air vents, etc..
- Finished Bollards on 2 sides of Septic Infrastructure
- Closed the ceiling for paint prep work
This week we will try to start and complete the following tasks:
- Start sanding the ceiling for possible paint starting on Wednesday
- Connect and complete the Mihrab civil work
- Revised Fire retention water to fire tank, instead of using the detention pond for total overall cost benefits analysis.
- Place order the Fire Tank overground order and start the civil work
- After considerable design reviews and brainstorming with contractor and centralized Construction committee, it is decided to use the overground fire tank instead of making detention pond into a retention pond. The initial cost, plus filtration cost along with fence for kids safety we may end up with the same cost as for overground tank.
- September 7th, Fire Marshal inspection and start the process of Occupancy Certificate
- Occupancy Certificate
Just to set up some sort of expectation for the building completion provided everything is normal with the help of Allah SWT and with all your prayers and support, we should be able to open for prayer in the new prayer hall by October 6th, 2018. Which means we try to make every effort to complete the building and get occupancy certificate in next 40 days In Sha Allah.
I will further update you by next Sunday (September 2nd, 2018) In Sha Allah. In the meantime, I humbly request to you for your continuous support, guidance, and prayers.
