Day 396: Masonry Work in Classrooms

April 22, 2016

After a short break during the Songkran holidays, the masonry work at the new campus has resumed. The masonry work is now being carried out on all three floors of the buildings, including the classrooms, bathrooms, parent room, infirmary room, music room and science lab. A large crane was brought to the site to aid the workers in moving the light-weight concrete blocks to the various floors. Piping work for the bathrooms in the northwest wing has also begun.

Day 373: Masonry Work Begins

March 30, 2016

The structural work of the buildings at the new campus site is now days away from completion. Workers are making final repairs to the structure in order to prepare for the next phase of construction: the architectural work.

The structure of the school’s amphitheatre is close to completion. Steel tie work was prepared for the first step of the amphitheatre followed by concrete pouring. The floor of the amphitheatre was then leveled and steel tie work was installed for the ground. At the same time, there has been rapid progress to mason the lightweight concrete bricks in the northeast wing. These concrete walls will form part of the rooms in the northeast wing, such as the Parent Room, Visitor’s Room, Mechanical Room, and Nurse’s Room.

Day 341: Roof Metal Sheet Installation Nearing Completion

February 27, 2016

On Day 341, the roof structure is looking more complete as the light-green colored metal sheet installation is nearing completion. Meanwhile, heavy machinery has also been brought in to fill and level the land of the L-shaped playground, the centerpiece of the new campus. Work has also been progressing in the school’s amphitheatre as cement trucks were used to pour concrete for the ramp at the south side and for the beams on the second floor of the north side.

Day 317: Steel Roof Structure Work Begins

February 3, 2016

The west wing of the new campus has made several advances as workers at the site began to lay steel form work underneath the roof slab to support the roof structure. Concrete was then poured for the roof slabs of the west wing. At the same time, the roof slabs for the lift shaft and northeast wing staircase were completed. Machines were brought in to carry out polishing for the surfaces of all roof slabs. The next phase of the roof structure has seen the preparation of columns for the angled steel roof structure. The first step of this process has been installing steel supports for the roof at the southeast wing.

Day 299: Roof Structure Advancing

January 16, 2016

Over the past month, steel tie work, steel form work and concrete pouring were completed for the third floor columns in the west wing. At the same time, steel tie work for the roof slabs in the northeast and southeast wing had begun. This was followed by concrete pouring for the roof slabs for both wings and finally removal of the steel form work. As the roof floor of the northeast wing was nearing completion, work had started to construct the four columns on the roof floor to support the elevator shaft. Earlier this month, in the large west wing, steel supports were installed and steel tie work was carried out for the roof beams.

Day 270: Signature Tree Installed

December 18, 2015

The new campus’ signature tree which is situated in the school’s main playground has now been installed. After visiting Nakhon Nayok province and viewing several potential signature trees, the school’s owners decide to select a “cork tree” to be the main feature of the playground. The tree was transported from Nakhon Nayok to the new campus by truck and a large crane was used to place it carefully in position through an awning in the second floor. The signature tree will receive careful attention including daily watering and stress protection treatment while the school construction continues.

Day 268: Structural Work for Roof Beams Begins

December 16, 2015

Structural work for the main buildings at the new campus is entering its final phase as steel support, wood form work and steel tie work is being installed for the roof’s beams for the southeast and northeast wing. Steel form work has also continued for the lift shaft in the northeast wing. Meanwhile, steel form work was removed for the third floor beams and slabs after it was completed and given time to set. In the northwest wing, steel tie work and form work for the third floors columns was carried out while the same is in progress for the columns at the Gym Room in the southwest wing.

Day 251: Third Floor Concrete Topping Complete

November 29, 2015

Work has been progressing on several different fronts of the new school campus – especially on the third floor of the main buildings. The steel form work for the third floor columns for the northeast wing and the east wing is near completion. Steel tie work for the elevator shaft at the northeast wing including the pouring of concrete is complete. Wooden support work and steel tie work was installed followed by concrete pouring for the two sets of staircases at the west wing connecting the second and third floor. To prepare for plank laying on top of the third floor beams in the large west wing, steel supports were installed to carry the heavy weight of the cement planks. Large cranes were then utilized to lift the planks in place. Following this, wire mesh was installed throughout the third floor of the west wing and a heavy duty concrete pump was brought in to complete the first layer of concrete topping.

Day 236: Third Floor Structure Advancing

November 14, 2015

Wooden form work and steel tie work is being carried out for the third floor concrete beams in the large expanse of the west wing. Steel tie work is also under way for the staircase from the second floor to the third floor at the southeast wing. The concrete floor topping and third floor columns have already been completed for the third floor in the rapidly-advancing northeast wing. The views from the third floor are fascinating as they provide a neat glimpse of the scope of the new campus and its surroundings.
