Within the framework of the plan to be implemented, the technical and engineering staff working in the first part of the second phase of the project to strengthen and re-gilding the walls of the Great Gold Iwan, known as "Al-Tarimah", began the work of removing the old tiles and their bonding materials, in order to start the second part, which includes the maintenance and sustenance of the walls and preparing them to be strengthened by the concrete wall linked to the old wall in a technical way by using special construction materials making it ready to be covered with new gilded tiles, which manufacture works were initiated in the gold and enamel workshops of the Department of engineering projects in the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine.
This was according to the statement of the head of the Department of the Engineering Projects at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine; Eng. Dea Majeed al-Sa'egh to the al-Kafeel Global Network: "The first part of this stage is one of the important parts because it will pave the way for the rest of the other parts, which will be implemented according to the plan developed by our department and based on the designs prepared for this project. And that the company executing it is the company (Land of Jerusalem Construction Contracting) that has used its capabilities to complete it within the specified time."
And he added: "The first part of the implementation of this project included the construction of special partitions to isolate fully the work site to not intersect with the movement of visitors and then starting putting numbers to the old tiles and gathering them in special boxes and delivering them to the Department of gifts and vows in order to benefit from it in other projects. Then the wall was cleaned from all the deposits and adhesives installed for the old tiles and the removal of fragile areas, and depending on the strength of each part of the wall. Thus, by the end of this part, the wall will be ready for the next part of the project, which is the maintenance and sustenance of the wall and its treatment in addition to supporting by a concrete structure including all technical and engineering matters in terms of the use of materials and others, and we will start soon in this work. "
This stage of the project will be complementary to the stage that preceded it, which will give the aesthetic side to the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine and preserve its construction facilities and work to maintain it and sustain it continuously while preserving its architectural and heritage texture with a cultural touch of strong and efficient quality.
