KBG – Construction – February 2012

View of the Mountains from the site with the foot over bridge leading to the Lal Bazar (the current vegetable vendors market of Gangtok) along the National Highway which is the spine on which the urbanity of Gangtok is organized. Most of the excavation on the lowest level was complete during this month and foundations for the rest of the structure were laid. The primary retaining wall was also constructed during this month.

Major retaining wall holding up the rest of the building. The sheer rock face behind the wall ensures stability of the floors above.

Reinforcement for the strip foundations to be constructed and excavation of the columns towards the entry to the Kisan Bazar.
