Safety Room Construction

Our team is building safety rooms on each floor of the building. Here are photos of the fourth floor construction, below.

Safe Rooms, also known as a “miklat” and popularly known as a mamad, is a reinforced security room required in all new buildings by Israeli law. It has reinforced concrete walls and ceilings, 20–30 cm thick floors, and airtight steel doors and windows.

Stages of construction: First the outside wood construction is assembled, second the metal beams are assembled and reinforced. Third, concrete is poured inside and fourth, the concrete walls are covered with drywall and made to look like a regular room.
