Before Construction - December 2012

Phase I: Alhamdulillah, the school closed on the 2 acre 12,000+ sqf property in Roswell on December 18th, 2012, completing Phase I.

Phase II: This consists of interior renovations to the existing building + addition of perimeter fence around the property for safety and security.

A Construction Committee was put together in February 2013 to assist with the interior renovations required to convert the building into a functional school by August 1. In March, a Project Manager was engaged to manage the pre-construction phase: estimating costs, developing architectural plans, securing permits from the city, managing bids from contractors and completing pre-construction work (repairs, asbestos removal, demolition). Alhamdulillah, the city of Roswell approved our plans on 4/25. Construction started on 5/13. MSM Int'l was chosen as contractor for the project. Completion date is 8/1.

At this time the school is soliciting cash, material and service donations in order to fund construction.

Phase IIB: In parallel, the school started the Conditional Use/Conditional Variance process with the city to convert the rear portion of the property to a multi-use outdoor play space and enclose/extend the rear dock area. The city's process will end in early July 2013, after which funding and construction for this phase will begin.

Phase II Cost: $750K
Costs To Date: $635K
Your financial support is critical in completing Phase II.
