Strenuous efforts are being made by the staffs of the Engineering Maintenance Department in the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine to implement the lobby project for the treatment and reanimation of patients with Corona virus. This lobby is implemented as a symbiotic gesture in favor of the Hindiya General Hospital, south of the holy city of Karbala, in order to contribute to increased preventive and precautionary measures, and to reduce the momentum in the Hayat lobby in the Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) medical city. And also because the district of Al-Hindiya is considered one of the largest districts in the province and is about 20 km away from it.
The project is implemented in coordination with the Health Department of Karbala with the follow-up of the medical affairs division in the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine.
Resident engineer Karar Brihi explained to the al-Kafeel Network during his presence there, saying: "The project works witnessed difficulty being implemented on a concrete structure, and this structure is dedicated to a building designed for it which makes the work difficult, but despite this, it did not stand in the way of implementing this project, Praise be to God, the works are proceeding with steady steps, within the specified timings and technical and engineering specifications.
He added: "The works that have been completed or are currently under construction, can be summarized as follows:
- The steel separation work has been completely completed according to the measurement of each room, which has an area of (5m x 3m).
- The percentage of completion of the infrastructure works for the project as a whole reached 90%, and included laying of sewage pipes, and this required time because we had to remove (65 cm) of concrete.
