L'endroit j'établis mon esprit -The Place I Lay Down My Mind-
I only just know that one of my not-so-near families had worked on Aceh. She worked on a british company which has a project in Aceh to rebuild and reconstruct that province after enormous earthquake and tsunami two years ago.
She worked as a planner and designer, to make a new –perumahan- for civilian whose houses demolished. She told us that the new houses will be build using number one material, number one paint, and number one in everything. With very very well design that outdo every single aspect in – teknik sipil – discipline.
But still, is not that easy to rebuild houses that even the bound with each other has gone. To identify one house boundaries, we must find the neighborhoods of the home owner, satu untuk batas depan, satu untuk kanan, satu untuk kiri, dan satu untuk belakang. And of course, after that disaster, it’s hard to find all neighborhoods.
And one that makes it even harder, the constructor must fulfill every person wants. Yeah, one by one!!! Imagine it!! May be a person want to have a white roof with beige colored wall and so on. Another person of course has a different specification. Even there’s a person who want green leaf colored outer wall and dark yellow inner wall. What??? Of course, for extremely request like that, constructor can’t accomplish it. Even many of the people have a very very detail request, such as an elevation degree between roof and wall, and the degree of curve of a nail..
The constructor has been holding a regularly meeting with the community. And the discussion often went so long and –terjadi debat kusir –. Hence, the discussion becomes a nightmare for the constructor. But still, there’s one prohibited words for the constructor: “take it or leave it”.
It’s so hard to rebuild and reconstruct the houses. I merely understand why it took so long.
