But essential for Diospi Suyana
Dear Friends of Diospi Suyana, the masonry works are nearing completion. The missing balustrades and some partition walls will be put in at a later juncture. We are sure that next week we can start plastering the inner walls of three group rooms. This week’s aim was concreting the first section of the roof deck.
We chose the roof’s bulkhead formwork so that the external shuttering can remain whilst concreting the attic. As I mentioned last week we had to rebuild the concrete-crane. Its mast now stands on a balcony-overhang of the ground floor ceiling and one floor higher the lift’s working platform has been constructed.
As always all hands were needed as we laid and bound the thin reinforcement irons together and positioned the light-sockets including the necessary empty conduits. These works went better than expected and planned; thus we could start concreting the first section of the roof on the Wednesday as opposed to Thursday. We got four hospital gardeners to help us make the concrete and by 3:30p.m. we had finished the task. Now we can all leisurely look forward to the “Fiestas Patrias de Perú” bank holiday weekend. Wishing you a good and blessed summer weekend, Udo.
The first section of the roof has been encased and we are laying the lower iron rod layer.
