To the Members of Wat Buddharangsi
This letter is to inform all of the members that the Board Directors and Officers of Wat Buddharangsi have made the final decision on the temple roof repair project. After exhausted finding many roofing companies with reasonable quote for this project, the Board has decided to award the project to Big-G Roofing company which has submitting a quotation around $90,000.00 to reroof the 3,200 Sq. Ft rooftop, replace about 2,400 Sq. Ft roof felts and tiles and rotten fascias on four sides corridors (walkways) of the main hall (a company gave a quotation as high as $215,000.00). The Board has informed the Abbot of Wat Buddharangsi along with the monks every step of the way of this project and Abbot has agreed and authorized to start the project as soon as possible.
The Board recognizes the financial burden of Wat Buddharangsi and compounds with the current economy situation. However, we have no choice but to repair the roofs immediately since it is now badly damaged, which may cause the roof to collapse. This is a good time to start and complete the project before the rainy season. This project will take some time since some roofing area was done without permit (such as the AC unit). The Board will conduct, monitor, coordinate with this company to verify that they pull all the necessary permits for the project. With this repair, insulation upgrading and correction, it will bring peace of mind to the next generation Board and Wat Buddharangsi members. For all details of the project, please feel free to contact Dr. Vichate Ungvichian who is a Board of Director and the point person at email@example.com
