With the BCI Academy building now seven years old, it was time for some upgrades to protect it from deterioration.
The months of May through September are considered the rainy season in Debre Zeyit. Most of BCI Academy is protected by shade, but some parts of the building are vulnerable due to exposure to direct rainfall. Reinforcements were added to these areas as well as areas close to the ground, which are exposed to water during cleaning. Reinforcement came in the way of cement, which will provide effective water proofing. New walkways were also added outside the school.
These upgrades ensured that BCI Academy is ready for the upcoming school year, and the building will remain standing solid for future generations.
