Progress of building the Meditation Hall

Preparing the Park to Open

Enjoy the Video! 
On July 17th, volunteers continue to repair part of the Park structure to be able to pass the “Certificate of Occupation”. It was a hot day but with a very good atmosphere!

Work moving ahead around the Meditation Hall

Some good news: Last week work around the Meditation Hall really moved ahead to create 1) the turnaround for a fire truck  (bottom left photo) and 2) a public parking (bottom right photo)

Quite a bit of work… The turnaround will also create a nice plaza near the meditation hall! 
The walls around the Meditation Hall will come later.

Week 4: The Dome: The acoustics are remarkable. The space feels inviting

The last week of building the dome — a huge milestone. Several layers of shot of concrete are sprayed on the walls, which now have several inches of foam and concrete.  The acoustics are remarkable.  The space feels inviting, embracing, intimate (depending on who you talk to).  The floor, doors and walls still need to be added but the dome is already beginning to fulfill its purpose as a beacon of light.

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.

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.
