Sometimes building contractors and clients accept plans from architects that are not easy to build
becomes a hard building fight job then - but looks like MGKB succeeds it ...
Weekly Construction Site Reports by Eng. Richard Muagsho / MGKB Co-Director
Weekly money list by Eng. Jimmy Casole - Accountant and Taxes / MGKB Co Director
Payment Overview by client - 1st BOQ was very incomplete
8 other offers and contracts followed - MGKB builded very
slow !! - overall 2,5 years it took to get this house done ...
But is was income for many many builders and the Kalivamuki
Family is very very happy to have this house to live in finally.
Client Mr. Goergen himself can not afford new shoes now ...
Typical quotations by Eng. George Botyo - Sourcing and Sales / MGKB Co-Director
This is how the Kakira Box Gutter House looked when Ing. Goebel was involved by the client.
The building money budget was used up already by this time, in that stage - but the house
was still in-complete and the water was leaking into the rooms ...
Lets have a closer view to the box gutter problem - that occurs when people do not want to show the iron sheets, when they want to show a big roof area - box gutters are a difficult and expensive
way to collect the rain water and to get it out at certain points. - See how difficult this is way to build is - water-tight for many years - in practice ...
Architects have to draw in the box gutters with : length, corners, endings and openings
for that the contractors see the challenge and that they can say yes or no to contract.
>>> there is an unfinished MGKB House in Uganda that needs to be
reviewed in roof area - and that needs windows, doors, floors, electric
installation, hydraulic installation, tiles and paint ...
just compare - it is never a good idea to build some walls more then what is shown in the plan
the plan proposed by Eng. Mugasho has to be considered ... Less is more - water want to flow
MGKB Site in Kakiri is rolling much better now - the client is going to get the roof he ordered,
Much staff on Kakiri Building Site now - we are expecting team photos next week
We have serious problems with the roof building quality
MGKB does NOT send the amount of photos it requires !
Client stopped payments because builders out of control
but then suddenly - many of the required photos arrived
the the architect and clients representative gave orders
and opend new doors towards extra mony landscape plan
After solving that photo problem the building site speeds up and develops better
Majorine, Richard, Jimmy - please fill this plan with the required elementss
Landscape Plan, calculation of works and elements in landscap plan please
A look into the money list 7th week shows all normal building costs and activity
buying the tiles and cement was the biggest expenditure in this week
and as it is a box gutter roof house - the roof is leaking - in many locations
now you really get fun - searching the causes - we gave additional money
for some new roof sheets and insulation paint ...
but we never give up hope - we solve our problems - no matter how big they are

building goes on :
