Dar es Salaam — The team of ten experts from Construction Consultants Engineers, Architects, Quantity Surveyors and security guards are finalising the preparations for full demolition of the Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (Tanesco) headquarters building.
The preparations which started last week, involving the removing of working materials including files and furniture to other Dar es Salaam regional offices.
Detaching of some movable things like doors and windows is expected to be completed by Tuesday, December 5, according to the Tanzania Building Agency (TBA)'s construction brigade manager, Mr Humphrey Killo.
Then, the demolition will officially start on Wednesday after the preparations and it will take a month, according to him.
"Preparations are taking so long because the demolition is not going to affect the whole building. We formed a team of experts who will work under the supervision of TBA to make sure that environment and security to people and other infrastructure are guaranteed," he said.
According to him, the building contains three parts including fore, central and back sites. Only fore-offices will be demolished.
"We have to protect the remaining offices, making sure that working tools, infrastructure and workers are safe during the demolition process," he said believing that the team will guarantee that concern.
He added that they are prepared to make sure that the exercise will not affect other people who are using nearby structures.
