Women At Work

Female workers helping to finish the Panigram bridge

During my visits to the site, it never fails to amaze me how many female workers are working alongside the men (30% of our workers are women).  Not only is it rare to see women at a construction site in general, yet here at Panigram, it’s nothing out of the ordinary.  The women help with digging, transporting materials, and backfilling among other duties.  It’s tough work but they’re getting the job done!

Making It Happen

Workers preparing the thatch roof

With construction well on its way, the resort is taking shape. It’s an exciting time to see how the plans and designs on paper are now transformed into physical buildings. The foundations have been poured and structural elements are in place. We’re also experimenting on finishes and materials on prototype buildings to enhance the feel of the resort. It takes time, but it’s a process that we know will achieve amazing results. There are over 200 workers from the local area working to make this resort a retreat in paradise.

Construction Work Begins!

Posted by on December 23rd, 2011

This is the site of our first bungalow – the “Jackfruit Bungalow” (so named because of its location in our jackfruit grove.) The tree in the middle (not a jackfruit) will unfortunately need to be removed, but we are shifting the bungalow a bit to try to save the nice jackfruit tree at the back. Stay tuned for more construction updates!
