SW Annex Building is currently one of our latest expansion project to cater for the growing Faculty of Medical Sciences here at UCSI University. This 40 footer container, built from scratch house 2 Medical Research Lab, 2 common classroom and and offices for the Faculty. The site is located between Block B & C, as below.
So as you can see, we manage to built a building out of thin air. What amaze me is, when the final pieces finally comes together, it just aesthetically gels in together with the adjacent building, thanks to the connecting flight of stairs, which is now heavily used by the student.
This is not the most complicated project we’d built, however it takes such a long time to complete as it involves so many contractors (both in-house and out-source). Coordination had been a headache and my recently my feet just felt sore from walking back and forth from site to office. But I’m not complaining, it’s just walking distance and I might just be able to shed some flabby tummy? Apart from that, building a container is very much complicated, as you need to take into consideration the sound and heat insulation, water proofing as well as the durability of the materials. All metal and steel bar has to be properly weld, seald and anti-rust painted to withstand our country’s harsh weather.
Below are some of the progress image, will share the detail interior space soon!
Till next post, have a happy weekend!
