This 5-roomed accommodation block was totally rebuilt by the Yellowmen after it had been abandoned 20 years ago. Now occupied by medical staff. The block was occupied despite only one room having a ceiling. During the past week or so Abraham, one of the Yellowmen Pokot team of builders has been completing the job that should have been completed last September.
The ceilings are suspended on metal angle iron and are a composite construction with a sprayed gloss finish. The iron frames are welded on site.
The ‘planks’ are non-porous and therefore do not attract or retain water should the roof spring a leak. The major cost of the work is the transport of material.
As all the ‘planks’ are ‘loose laid’ no damage is needed when cables or light fittings are added.
The work should be completed within two weeks. Though not the cheapest of systems, this method is impervious to the ravages of termites. In the refurbishment of the building all wood was removed and replaced with metal – window frames, door frames etc.
