Reception Hall Phase 2 to Begin in March 2015
December 30, 2014

During the past year, the construction of the new Reception Hall has mostly been on hold, with the exception of a few additions to the infrastructure: stairways, septic tank, underground electrical lines and drains, radiant underfloor heating tubes, finished floor levels, and a small retaining wall.
