The building will be equipped with state-of-the art facilities incorporated with environment-friendly and energy-efficient features. This project aims to provide lecture facilities to 1,200 students together with modern facility equipped multi-disciplinary centre with a canteen and an endless rooftop garden surrounded by the eco-friendly environment.
Project Manager AEL, Senarath Bandara said, “We encountered many challenges during rainy seasons as the site got flooded often but we ensured to maintain the eco-friendly construction procedures so that the environment is not harmed. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic situation also delayed the timely completion of the project due to material and labour shortage. However; with the contribution and commitment of the team we successfully completed the project creating new avenues to our future generation.”
