The achievements made by the staff of the Department of Engineering Maintenance and Construction at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine were numerous, and they were able to prove that the Iraqis are capable of accomplishing any building if the appropriate conditions are available. And its recent achievement in the province of Babylon is only the tip of the iceberg of this department’s abilities, as it was able, in a very record period of time, to complete the construction of two schools, starting with the design, the implementation, and finally equipping them, so that this educational edifice would be a landmark in the province.
The head of the department, Eng. Samir Abbas, told Al-Kafeel Network: "The establishment of these two schools, which were implemented for the benefit of the Department of Education and Higher Education at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, are among the successful construction experiments of the department's staff with all of its divisions and units. And the two educational facilities were built in (70) days with high quality specifications, in line with the requirements of the Ministry of Education to establish such facilities, and in a manner that contributes to creating a suitable educational environment for students.”
He added: "The project area was 3,650 square meters, divided equally into two primary schools, one for boys and the other for girls. Each school contains (15) classrooms with laboratories, bathrooms, administrative and service rooms, and central courtyards with gardens because of the positive aspect of this factor in the student’s psyche, there were indoor and outdoor green spaces that were planted with various seedlings and plants. The project was also provided with a set of modern and advanced systems such as alarm, firefighting, fire, electricity and cameras.
Engineer Samir stated that: "The equipping of these two schools with the necessary supplies was also from the department's workshops, which included doors, windows, and school and administrative furniture."
