Despite eight months of total lockdown in 2020 and limited construction in 2021, the TOVP is now back on track with our normal construction work force. Below is a list of current work and goals to achieve for 2022.
Nrsimha Wing Completion
We plan to have the Nrsimha Wing completed and ready for unveiling in 2022. This includes the altar, pillars, floor and other design elements that will create a dazzling and splendorous room for Lord Nrsimhadeva.
Interior Dome Work Completion
The interior of the TOVP three domes is the most complex of all the work, as it includes the installation of specially designed and in-house fabricated coffered ceiling panels and soundproofing. Read more about these here.
Pujari Floor Final Touches
Although completed for the most part with 69 rooms, and officially unveiled in 2020, there were a number of areas that needed to be revisited and tweaked to perfection. That work continues daily.
Outdoor Utility Building Completion
The outdoor utility building is the structure that will house our own electrical power generator for the TOVP, and work has already commenced to complete it by early 2022.
Mock Up Pillar Production
All our pillars, windows and other decorative work have been done in-house. We are now creating our first mock-up external pillar molds to test on the existing pillar structures. Once finalized, these molds will be cast into the actual external pieces of the pillar, fit into place and prepared for marbling and other design elements.
Ongoing Mechanical, Electric and Plumbing Work (MEP)
As can be imagined, it’s no simple task installing mechanical, electric and plumbing fixtures throughout a 600,000 square foot structure. But that’s exactly what our highly skilled professional staff is doing.
Keep in mind that all this work cannot continue without your help. Please continue to make your monthly pledge payments on time, or complete your pledge as soon as possible. If you have not made a donation yet or would like to help again, take this opportunity to sponsor an abhisheka for the Grand Welcome Ceremony of Srila Prabhupada’s new murti in the TOVP on October 14 and 15.
