Week 3: What happened this week (Meditation Hall Movie)

This movie shows the photos and clips of this week, showing how the construction is moving forward. Foam has been sprayed for insulation.  The rebars are being attached to the walls by sheer force or…  dexterity. The dedication of the workers is amazing as well as their friendly spirit.

The Dome: A movie that shows its unique/unusual construction.

For those who were wondering why a shell first?
The Dome explained from the point of view of its unique Building process…
The ongoing construction of the Meditation Hall in its second week. This movie show from outside and inside its unique building process that start with a shell. Excerpt from movie: The shell of the dome was attached and inflated (seen from outside and inside). Next steps will be to spray foam on the inside walls for insulation, then spray concrete embedded with rebar to build the sphere shape of the dome.  A volunteer architect was onsite to help

Week 2: Meditation Hall: Shell Inflated!

An amazing unique process…  An inflatable shell which will be the template to pour the inside walls of the dome of the Meditation Hall  arrived from Texas and was inflated this past week. The shell will also be used as waterproofing for the dome. We were impressed how beautiful the Dome of the Meditation Hall look!

Construction of Meditation Hall: About to begin!

No this is not the real crew but the professional team will start the construction of the dome of the meditation hall starting this week.

A lot of work was put into preparing the land and now the Hudson Valley Park is ready to receive the crew from South Industry to build the dome, central piece of our Meditation Hall!

We will keep you posted on the progression of the building.
