BGMEA building: To be or not to be?

Dhaka, Mar 19 ( The High Court is likely to declare final judgment Tuesday on demolition of Bangladesh Garments Manufacturers and Exporters' Association (BGMEA) building, constructed illegally Hatirjheel Lake in the capital, sources said.

A bench of the High Court had pronounced the judgment earlier in 2011, that declared construction of the 16-storey high rise building illegal and as such ordered its demolition.

The High Court bench comprising Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury and Justice Sheikh Md Zakir Hossain passed the judgment after hearing its earlier suo moto rule issued in October, 2010.

The rule was issued by another High Court bench on its own motion when a Supreme Court lawyer DHM Muniruddin placed a newspaper report on illegality of the BGMEA building before the court.

However, a day after the High Court judgment the Appellate Division of the SC on April 5 stayed the judgment following a petition filed by BGMEA president seeking permission to appeal against the judgment.

Illegal building is what

Illegal building is what happens when the working places and storing buildings or facilities ask for immense rents and companies cannot afford them anymore. It is a great problem especially for manufacturers who need these places to keep the merchandise before they ship it to stores all over town, country or even internationally. Luckily, lately there have been developed a series of solutions for people who need storage space, such as, places where you can keep everything you need in good and safe conditions at affordable costs.

It is very clear that every builder must wear a protective gear when he is at work. It is very dangerous to work in this field, but a protective gear, like the one from can reduce the work accidents and at the same time, makes the builder to work more productively, without any worry that he can injure while he is doing is job.

When people look at this

When people look at this impressive building they feel sad that it might be demolished within days. But if it was constructed illegally, and the contractor didn't bother to visit then the government should issue orders to demolish it soon. Before beginning any such construction, the contractors should obtain permission from the authorities.

Many companies rented a space

Many companies rented a space in BGMEA building especially because the position of the building was ultracentral and they we're full equipped with some of the best offices. They worked with this company and had some of the best facilities, with a great and interesting design. Hopefully, they won't decide to demolish the building, even though the future doesn't look too good.

Sad news for the ones that

Sad news for the ones that we're working in this building, BGMEA was a symbol more than just a building. Of course, if the final judgemenet isn't favorable and the building will be demolished, they can always think about mortgage for 2nd home in West Palm Beach FL . Anyway, they must wait and see the final decision.

Hopefully, the High Court

Hopefully, the High Court won't decide to demolish this building that everyone absolutely loved. The design and architecture looks like the perfect job done by a company that takes care of hardscape design in Maryland . We should be optimistic and hope that the final judgement will be a favorable one.

BGMEA building was a national symbol, too bad they might decide in favor of its demolition. The architecture was absolutely gorgeous and they might have worked with painters in Portland in order to give it such a great look. Anyway, one can only hope, we must wait for the final judgement.
