Plano Masjid Progress Update – Monday, January 19, 2022

The Plano Masjid project, as any complex project – has been filled with curve balls and learning curves. Hindsight is always 20/20 – but at the same time, real-time ground reality is a major factor in any decision making process.

Having said that, Experience with contractors has allowed us to realize the do’s and dont’s and refocus as we move forward. This has been especially true as we wind down phase 1 and Phase 2 planning becomes a closer reality.

Masjid related updates and various Meeting Details:

  • The Qibla marble has been mobilized to the masjid and installers will start work this week. Expected install time is 4 weeks
  • The Chandeliers have arrived from Egypt and have been mobilized to the masjid.
  • Unpacking of crates and assembly will start on Saturday of next week.
