… everything is written down for posterity
Hello Friends, every so often “small minor repair-works” need to be completed in the hospital, which need to be performed by our building team. The price of these works is that work stalls on the kindergarten building site.
Finally the last ten fire-safety boards were put on the attic of the “Consultorio”, an access path to the new library was concreted and fence posts were erected for the enclosure for two satellite systems within the hospital compound.
As I mentioned last week the laying of the Terrazzo floor in the two new operating theatres is extremely time-consuming. So far the roughly one centimetre thick terrazzo layer and the hollow profiles have been laid up to the walls. Using a wet-polishing machine that is fairly heavy and could almost find its place in a history museum we are sanding the floor-areas. As the process needs to be repeated several times I hope that I can give you the final report in this regard in next week’s building report.
In the workshop the first ductworth moulds for the ground floor ceiling for the kindergarten building are being built. On the building site itself the masonry works are, taking the circumstances into consideration, progressing satisfactorily. Work on the side outside-walls and the stiffening columns is very time-consuming and is hard work, due to the many window- and door-openings.
I hope that you had a sunny and relaxing 1st May bank holiday and wish you God’s rich blessing for the week ahead! Udo
