The resilience of the STP tenants in Islamabad continues
I remember how impressed I was with the determination that the CEOs of the companies of the Evacuee Trust Complex STP and their teams showed following the blast on September 20. Their guts, the positive steps they took to ensure that business continuity was maintained, their ability to look beyond the rubble and destruction was truly inspiring.
What is even more amazing is that two weeks after their walls and ceilings came tumbling down, 11 of the companies have moved from their temporary locations back into the Technology Park. Once the building foundation was declared safe and the main electrical cabling was found to be unaffected, individual companies checked their internal wiring, cleared out the broken material, replaced the shattered windows with thick plastic or wooden sheets, removed the broken false ceilings and either painted the airconditioning and cable ducts or covered them with foil, brought back their computer equipment and renewed their operations from their old premises. I congratulate them on their resilience and their ability to remain positive in the worst of circumstances.
Meanwhile the management of the building has apparently opened up the tenders for the renovation work. I hope they will commission and start the work right away so that things can be back to “normal” as soon as possible.
