Following Towship’s approval of its expansion plans and securing of necessary permits, Dar ul Islah started construction in September 2008. The foundation and the first floor slab were constructed by February of 2009.
In the meantime, the adjacent house at 318 Fabry Terrace became available for purchase and Dar ul Islah acquired it in March of 2009. This purchase gave an opportunity to explore the possibilities of redesigning the expansion.
