Meetings with Stakeholders
Several meetings (approx. 8) were held with interested parties over the period: School officials, Church officials, Education and Municipality officers and Community leaders.
Approvals and Demolitions
The Foundation received permission from the MCE (Municipal Chief Executive) to demolish unwanted structures and begin the construction of the Ultra-modern Washrooms
Ultra-Modern Washroom Design
The TEKSAP VENTURES Architectural company, led by Architect Michael Dwomor Sarpong, designed the two Washrooms according to the design criteria generated by the Foundation and the Stakeholders
The Sod Cutting Activity
Ground-breaking ceremony was held at the Ejisu Roman Catholic School with students, teachers, church officials, Municipality & Education officials, Community leaders and the community at large
The Sub-Structure Construction Activity
The construction began with the foundation and the septic tanks – all the below-ground structures.
The Block Work to Roof Level Activity
The outer shell and the inner divisions needing blockwork have been constructed all the way to the roof level.
The New Mechanized Borehole (Well) Construction
The Rotary Club’s Mechanized Borehole (Well) currently on the R/C school campus has been the source of water for the Kindergarten Washroom (w/c toilets, urinals, sinks and shower). However, primarily due to distance and accessibility, a new mechanized borehole (well) will be constructed to supply water to the Primary & JHS Building (w/c toilets, urinals and sinks)
The Roofing and Plastering Activity
- Both the wooden structure and the roofing sheets will be applied.
- Plastering of the concrete blocks will be completed
The Fitting of Windows & Doors Activity
- The appropriate outside and interior doors & windows will be fitted
The Tiling Activity
All inside walls and floors will be tiled (except for the Office)
Plumbing and Electricals Activity
Includes: 1) Connections to Water Tower and drainage to the Septic tanks, 2) Lights and 3) Wall-mounted Exhaust Fans
Water Tower Construction
One Tower will be constructed for each of the washrooms (KG & P+JHS), to carry a polyethylene storage tank. Water from the underground wells (boreholes) will be pumped into the storage tanks to provide water pressure (by gravity) for the W/C toilets, sinks, urinals and shower
Painting will be done mostly on the outside of the buildings (most interior walls will be tiled). Only the office (in the P&JHS building interior) will be painted.
Ceiling & Internal Fittings Activity
Water Closet toilets, urinals, sinks, shower stall, light fixtures, exhaust fans and ceiling panels will go in at this stage
The Commissioning Activity
Both Washroom facilities will be checked for functionality, per the design criteria, and turned over to the School, the Ejisu St. Anthony Roman Catholic Parish and the Municipality.
