Here is a small update on the current activities that are going on in the TOVP.
1. We started making a full size sample of the wooden windows.
This is the beginning of the frame around the windows, on the very top underneath the domes.
All together there are 240 windows to cover, lots of work!
You can see in this image how big and think the wood has to be for such a large window.
Sadbhuj prabhu and the team went to inspect the workmanship.
2. We have just received a cast iron piece that the factory made for us which is part of the railings design.
They have refined their technique to the way we wanted it, now we want to commence the production.
In this image you will see we are holding one of the pieces, which weights 13 kg and it’s quite thick.
Definitely this cast iron will last forever!
3. Production of the GRC Rib Segments has commenced on a full scale.
They are ready to be placed on the actual domes ribs once the waterproofing is completed. Each segment weights 450 kg!
For each small dome we will need 120 segments. At the moment we are producing 1 segment a day but more mold are being fabricated to be able to produce 3 per day.
Many jobs have started this new year. We will keep you updated on the progress!
