    THT's Construction Updates - Jan 2020 Posted on : Jan 04, 2020

    Dear Members and Devotees,
    The temple leadership wishes you a joyous new year and fantastic 2020.  May the grace of Eashwara be showered upon you and your family and friends.
    Year 2020 is an important year for our community as we work hard towards making the dream of a traditional temple for triad community a reality.  We seek your continued involvement and support as we work together towards that goal.  During the last general body meeting, it was agreed upon that the community will be updated on a monthly basis regarding the progress towards building the new temple.  
    Here is the first update since that meeting. Here is 2019 year end construction updates: 
     
    •We have  received "Site Development Permits" ( Including land clearing, Ground leveling, Roads and Parking except Building permit)  from the town of Oakridge, County & NCDOT. Septic system permit from Health Department. Building permit application to the county is ready to be submitted.
    •Based on our architect's recommendation, the construction committee (CC) is working towards selecting a General contractor and work with them to phase out our project to bring it within our budget. CC has identified three firms and sought itemized costs from them. 
    •The three firms were selected based on their construction credentials and  their strong interest to work with us on our plan.  
    •An interview process of three firms will be conducted in close coordination with our architect. CC hopes to finalize a General Contractor by end of January based on the interview sessions and make their recommendation to the BoD/BoT and to the general body for approval.   
    •Above process is important because  recently we have received very preliminary estimates which indicate that we need to revise our plans to fit our budget. The  Construction committee is working hard on the revised plan  
    •Once the General contractor is finalized, Site development will begin depending on the weather by the selected contractor. 
    •The Site Development work will take 3-4 months to be completed.   
    •Building Construction will start as soon as possible after building permit is approved and site is ready.
    With the grace of Bhagavan, we look forward to a historical year for Triad Hindu Temple and bringing you regular updates.
