Progress so far
Work has been progressing very quickly. So far, we’ve seen a mix of trades on-site, including the groundworks team, to set out and install the strip foundations for the new internal offices. Our dry liners have been making light work of the internal walls and boarding, completing the work faster than expected and reducing our programme by several days. Electrically, we are now fully first fixed with cables and pipework in the necessary places which now means we can board both sides of our walls, ready for tape and jointing. The existing fire sprinkler system has also been modified up to and including second fix meaning we just have sprinkler heads left to install when the ceilings go up.
Over the next two weeks
As of Monday next week, we’ll be looking make a start on mechanically installing ducting and pipework externally to the new air conditioning units which will be installed on the roof. Tape and jointing will also commence as of Tuesday meaning we can look to make a start on decoration the following week and then look to start putting ceiling up.
