Construction Updates- Sai Krushna Mandir

With the Divine Blessings and grace of our Beloved Swami, the ground floor of Phase 1 of the children’s home – Sai Krushna Mandir – will be operational soon. While there are numerous challenges, the SKM construction team is working to ensure that the construction and funding are all moving along expected timelines.
The entire building would be finished by February/ March. It is expected that Sai Krushna Mandir will be functional as a children’s home from April/May 2013. That way, the children who will be coming will also be able to join during the change of academic session. We also invite applications for suitable volunteer families who will be willing to live with and take care of the children. 
By Swami’s grace the terrace roof work for Phase 1 of Sai Krushna Mandir was completed in the second week of January. The flooring work for all the floors along with fixing of bathroom fittings, is expected to be completed by the third week of February.
The next few weeks will involve the external wall plastering and other necessary completion work for all the floors to have it ready in time for operations in April/May.Solar lighting has already been implemented in the ground floor. Thie wiring for solar lighting and fans has also been done for the first and second floor. This is expected to save operational costs in the long run and also be environment friendly. The lighting will support hybrid power sources- solar and electric – to ensure proper lighting even on rainy days. The members of the SKM construction team are also making frequent site visits to monitor the quality and quantum of progress.
Our construction consultants, the civil contractor Mr Umesh and members of the SKM construction team are all satisfied with the rate of progress and quality of construction. Kindly see the attached photos. The construction workers will be felicitated on Swami’s birthday.
