Alhamdolillah, the construction work on the As-Salam Mosque Project commenced during the first week of September 2023. Praise be to Allah swt for bestowing us this joyous occasion.
The contractor has begun earth excavation. The next step is pile work, on which the Mosque floor will rest, which is going to commence in a few days. The Project Team has also recommended to the Board awarding a contract for civil works. This includes water, sewer and storm water lines and several other civil works components. Once approved the Civil Works contractor will also be on site very soon. The Project Team has also finalized recommendation for the elevator. While the elevator is one of the last items to be installed, the contractor must be chosen now to ensure design is prepared to meet elevator specifications.
On the building design side of things, IAOS has received the final building drawings. Mechanical, structural and electrical drawings are also expected in the next few days. IAOS will apply to the City of Regina soon after that, for permit, Insha Allah. These drawings will also be issued to potential contractors simultaneously to get quotations and start the process of selecting contractors for framing, electrical and mechanical work.
The Project Team is also awaiting final interior design concept from the Architects. These details will be finalized in September Insha Allah, and a presentation will be made to the Board for approval of interior design concept.
