We are happy to update you on the progress of the construction of the Abbot’s House—so far, the skeleton of the ground floor and first floor have already been laid. What remains now is the last slab of second floor and the roof. Currently, the builders are working on form work and steel bending for the second-floor slab.
However, our initial budget overshot due to the addition of the Basement, the increased cost of the building materials, and the depreciation of the dollar-shilling value. We welcome your generous support to see that the UBC Building Project becomes a success.
