Building Progress of PERKOBP Centre

Perspective of New centreAfter 17 years of persistence on the cause of improving the quality of life of persons with learning difficulties through vocational training and employment, members of PERKOBP finally see that their dream is coming true. A centre for persons with learning difficulties. The new centre would provide a better working environment; allow those on the long waiting list to have a chance of being trained; provide respite care to parents via a Day Care Centre; introduce more vocational skills, etc.

The construction of the centre is undertaken by Universal Construction Management with a cost of RM800,000.00 and a contingency provision of RM80,000.00. Completion date is now expected to be by end of 2012.

Clearing of land

Clearing of land started in early November 2010. The land had grown many matured fruit tress like rambutan, mango, Jack fruit, papaya and banana. However, all of them had to give way to the building. The workers said they also found many snakes and tortoises on the land! The following pictures shows the land before and after it had been cleared.

Making the Drains

In December 2010, two teams were employed to construct the drains on the right and left side. The drains connect to the monsoon drain in front and would channel away the rain water. (bottom left picture)

Work on the pile spots started just around the 20th December where an excavator was used to dig up the earth surrounding the concrete piles in order to prepare for footing work. Subsequently, a worker was deployed to trim down the piles of all the 25 pile spots.
