Construction is about to begin !

First site meeting

First site meeting

It was with great excitement to have our first site meeting on Monday at Blomvlei
Primary School in Hanover Park. Construction of phase one, the library, begins on the 1st February 2010.

arG are the architectural company who have designed and planned the
Blomvlei Community Center and under their professional advice we have
appointed Drucon Building Contractors. They have a good understanding of
the project and what we are wanting to achieve with the community center.

Drucon recently completed the Football for Hope project in Cape Town
which made us more confident that we had a contractor who had previous
experience of building projects which involved community development.
They also have a number of their permanent building team who live in Hanover Park
so this also makes them a great choice as they have an understanding of the community and the needs of this community.

Once construction begins we will be able to organise visits to the project but it must be by appointment only. Everyone will also have to adhere to strict safety rules and will only be allowed on site with closed shoes and a hard hat.

We will be having an opening ceremony for the project and an invitation will be
sent out shortly to all Friends of the Trust. We hope you will be able to join us and celebrate this momentous moment which could never have happened without your support.

We still have a large shortfall in the building costs due to increased building and
material costs so we hope you will all encourage other members of the Tourism
Industry to support us by becoming a Friend of the TCD Trust in 2010 and making the
dream come true for the community of Hanover Park !
