Sandal Magna children's drawings

Here at Rutland Mills, we couldn’t wait to see the faces from everybody down at Sandal Magna Primary School as we welcomed them to come for a visit on Thursday to see the amazing drawings done by the children, which are now displayed around the site.

Progress so far

Building 7:  The roof is now complete, along with the external brickwork which has allowed us to start removing the external scaffold. The rotten floor joists and boarding has now been removed to the second floor, this has allowed the joiners to start replacing the joists and floor boarding with new. Structural strengthening of the timber beams has started by installing new steel beams which are bolted to the existing timber beams and sat on pad stones.

Building 9: Paint work has now started to the match board to the internal roof and the internal steel staircase has now been installed. The M&E 1st fix has now commenced as the stud partitions will follow on shortly.

Building 10:  The joiners have finished installing the new roof timbers which has allowed the roof coverings to commence and the roof lights have now been installed. Groundworks have also started within the building footprint to allow the drainage and incoming services to be installed.
