Fame & Roof

2014 October


The walls are now clad and ready for windows.

Reminders of the original building are appearing on
the balcony section.


Seeing the people aloft illustrates the scale of this Ear Care Centre project.





2014 November


The exterior is waiting for paint and some glass.

The inside is now well under way with services and

tiling. The construction team have pulled the project

forward to regain two months in the schedule.

Fame & Roof

2015 March


The interior is progressing apace. However, there is a lot to be done. Fitting out a medical facility involves a a lot of detailed work. The photo shows the exterior looking smart but with some ground-work still needed.

Fitting Out

2015 July


The BRINOS Ear Health Community Service (BEHCS) can now move into the ground floor. The BRINOS Ear Camp surgical team will use part of the ground floor until the proper facilities are ready on the first floor.

Moving In

2015 November

The interior is virtually finished, so it’s really only the Theatre, with its specialist needs, that is left to be completed.  The external ground-works will need to be carried out but now the monsoon season has passed, the painting of the exterior is under way.

This has covered the terrazzo floor and marble work surfaces, the carpentry work to create all the cupboards, the stainless steel scrub-up sink and 3 Air Conditioning units.


St Marks Overseas Aid Trust (SMOAT) for funding a specialist mechanical multi-positional operating table.
