Milestones so far and further planning

In meetings with the architects and different contractors, it became more clear that both the buildings will not be completed by Christmas. The goal now is to start using the new male accommodation in January and the new kitchen-dining building for the 20-day course starting on the 10th of March, 2023. The special work period - BUILDING PROJECT will therefore be extended till the 10th of March.
