This is video clip 3.

Video shows the entire reinforced concrete columns to support the new roof had been completed. The horizontal reinforced concrete beams supporting the entire façade walls are also done up.

The timber base plate sitting on the beam anchored with specially designed steel brackets, the vertical members, the top plate, all are secured, ready to receive the roof-truss.

This is video clip 4.

At this stage of the restoration work, quite a number of internal red brick-walls had been constructed. Look at the facades, red-bricks are also used which is definitely stronger than the old hollow precast blocks used in the olden days. Red-brick walls are also load bearing walls.

The openings in the façade walls are meant for the installation of doors and louvred timber windows.

This is video clip 5.

Video clip shows the lifting of a typical roof truss by a mobile crane for installation at Matilda House.

The whole operation from lifting to alignment on the roof plates took only a few minutes. That's the operation speed.

This is video clip 6.

Video clip 6 is a continuation of video clip 5. Gradually the lifted roof truss was aligned and secured by carpenters on either side of the frame.
