Foundation built to withstand earthquakes and freezing
The huge basement of the Kilung Shedra and Community Center foundation is divided up into two spaces. The space on the bottom is filled with dirt and is engineered to keep the building stable in case of an earthquake. It also acts to keep the temperature more stable for the whole building. The contractors are working night and day, and not taking weekends off, to take advantage of the weather while it lasts.
