Assalamua'laikum and Salam 1MALAYSIA to all readers ^_^

On the previous post all of you have knew how excited we are to begin the construction process. In this episode, we would like to share to all readers how the process begin. Once we receive the construction material, we start with formwork design process by using plywood and some woods...

the material arrives

we began by building a site for the formwork

making framework

nailing plywood to the frame
Once we have completed making site on the framework, we start to sketch a star shape on the plywood with the real scale...

sketching process

principal visits
formwork in the form of stars, which were completed was transferred and installed at the construction site with the help of Mr. Hasyim workers...

star-shaped formwork is almost ready

formwork that have been ready fitted in construction site

And that was our first construction activities that we do, we have gained so many knowledges during this activites. We would like to thank to Mr. Hasyim for giving us this golden opportunity and share the knowledge with us. We also would like to thank to our principal, Tuan Haji Khailani for visiting us and giving words of encouragement to us.

Thats all for this episode, we hope you guys enjoy reading this and don't forget to read the next episode....

4th Episode : Marking Construction Site

continued from the previous post...... ^_^

After the construction site cleaned on Thursday (3/6/2010) .... on the next Saturday (5/6/2010) , we were taught how to mark the construction sites in the right way before starting the construction process by En. Hashim ( the construction adviser ) ....

Measure the site
make sure it's straight
determine the pad footing area
marking the pad footing area

sites were marked

On the same day....  we were divided into 3 groups and were asked by En. Hashim to discuss how to produce a scale drawing of the star base in true and accurate size.... the drawing will guide the formwork design process of  the star base ..... we were given a day to think and plan a simple way, fast and accurately to produce the drawing.... the drawing will be perform on the next Monday (7/6/2010) ...

Assalamua'laikum and Salam 1 MALAYSIA to all readers ^^

Today we want to share with you what is the truth behind the clock tower building. The idea to build this clock tower was inspired by 14 students of Engineering Technology in 2010 with the aim to make it as a landmark and became a symbol of pride to the schoolConsent of the principals has given us opportunists for the clock tower to realize.  The construction of this clock tower is to full fill the needs of Engineering Technology course work while in form 5 (SPM).

The construction of this clock tower has been running for 8 months from February 2010 until October 2010. Students have been working with experts from Pro DIY Enterprise Company, Minutes and Second Industry SDN BHD and many more in realizing the construction of this clock tower. Hence a lot of experiences has been gained during the construction process and can be applied on the students themselves.
Alhamdulillah, thanks to the support and contribution to all parties involved. The Islamic features landmark was built in accordance with the mission and vision of the school.
