Finishing works at the National Shrine in Pointe Michel

It is my pleasure to present you with some photographs of the finishing works. With the changing of the colour scheme, this becomes a complete different Place of Worship. So far more than $ 435,000.00 has been spent on the renovation, which started with the removal of Asbestos in August 2012. NS in Aug 2014 P1130246

The uncovering and inspection work on the roof of the Pointe Michel church is almost complete. As expected quite a lot of timber has to be changed.

Engineers Wendell Lawrence, Kendall Johnson and Bernard Lauwyck performed an inspection of the existing roof today and found it weak in several areas.

Mr. Stevenson JOSEPH the contractor will have to do additional work such as bolting down, welding, casting of roof beams, etc.

To be continued.
