Paul Burnham (http://www.paulburnham.com.au/) arrived in Colombo yesterday and heads up to Jaffna tomorrow to work with Ashok and Reddy on our asbestos-replacement roof project. Chern NG, our in-house Perth architect, designed the corrugated roof that Ashok and Reddy manufactured from industrial waste HDPE plastic sheet (High Density Polyethylene) reinforced with rice husk fibres. They developed and assembled the roof in our University of Jaffna Killinochchi facility. Paul will oversee installation of the composite roof on one of the toilet blocks that the Dust Project built in Paalam’s Irupalai community last year. Today, Ashok and Reddy supervised the dismantling of the asbestos roof in preparation for the new green composite roof and, if this prototype is successful, we hope to roll out many more of the same. More to come in the next few days.
