Mass Excavations Started
All construction projects have a starting date, ours are 25 April 2013
Kouga Plant and Civil was recently appointed to complete the "mass excavations" in preparation for the digging of foundation trenches and pouring of concrete.
The mass excavations will provide the three platforms needed for phase one of the proposed GLA Eco Campus (Take a 3D Tour). Phase one includes 25 classrooms, Offices, Staff room and a multi functional gathering space, as well as initial sport fields and site establishment such as fencing, access roads, etc.
Progress on the first of 10 "Canadian Butt and Pass Log Homes" is being made with the structure reaching "roof height" this week. The log homes will be used for accommodation of students and teachers, with a total capacity of 80 residents once all ten log homes are completed.
These "log homes" are Eco friendly in design and unique in Africa. The log home being constructed currently, is only the second one of its kind in Africa as far as we know.
