The design and construction work of the urban regeneration project in Henamulla – Phase II undertaken by Access Engineering PLC is making a significant progress.
This project is developed as a permanent solution for the relocation of underserved and derelict community settlements scattered across Colombo.
Access Engineering PLC was entrusted with the design and construction work of the said project, which is part of a drive that is spearheaded by the Megapolis and Western Region Development Ministry with the forward vision to upgrade the living standards of the underserved communities by providing them proper housing in nearby apartment complexes and thereby utilizing the vacant lands where the dilapidated settlements are utilized for the city’s future development. The project is implemented under the guidance of the Urban Development Authority and construction and supervision of the Central Engineering Consultancy Bureau.
The scope of the project entrusted to Access Engineering PLC includes design and construction of four 15-storey apartment blocks, which comprise 941 housing units of two bedrooms and spaces for living, kitchen, toilet and balcony along with the basic utilities.
“The structural work of all four apartment blocks is now completed and the operation team of Access Engineering is mainly involved in the interior and exterior finishes and MEP work of the buildings,” said Henamulla Phase II Urban Regeneration Project Construction Manager Upul Henepola.
This development, which intends to enhance the living standards of the community with pleasing visual environment and maximum privacy for individual housing units, is executed in accordance to the regulations of the Central Environmental Authority (CEA), Fire Service Department and Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).
