"The technical and engineering staff have completed the installation of secondary ceilings' decorations made of Fibreglass, within the expansion project of the holy shrine with the roofing of the sanctuary of Abu Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), which is one of the important stages of this vital project." According to the statement of the head of the department of projects engineering at the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine; Engineer Dea' Majeed Al-Sa'egh, the direct overseeing body of the design and implementation of all the details of the project.

So, we developed a plan to this phase to not intersect with the movement and the passage of the visitors through dividing the works inside the sanctuary to several stages for the progress of works in same pace as the works of the installation of glass pieces, which the stage that follows the setting up of the secondary ceilings, in order to shorten the time and complete the project as soon as possible.

Noting that the raw material for these pieces is the Fibreglass, which is a strong and light material that is characterized by its solidity and flexibility at the same time, and can bear the extreme weather conditions such as heat, humidity, pressure, etc. And, it is not harmful to environment and has the advantage of isolating the heat and sound, and highly resistant to breaking, pressure, fire and water leakage. We have brought it from South Korea, and the Malaysian DK Company was responsible for cutting it according to the pre-set measurements."
