Commencement of work

During February we have all seen some extreme weather across the region, I’m sure this has been shared with many of the construction sites across our group with temperatures on our site recorded as low as -7.5’C. I’m pleased to say that we have endured the rain and snow and have completed the erection of the steel frame structure on time.

If you happen to drive past you can now get a feel for the size and shape of the new building and you will also see the new signage to our roadside hoarding.

In the spirit of constructing a local community health Hub; we want to reach out to our local communities. Social value starts from the heart by us giving and sharing. Our local economies and communities are special and can benefit hugely from small acts of kindness and at Sewell we wear our hearts on our sleeves. There is so much positivity that can be created by engaging with the people around us and we need to know if you need our support.

Progress so far

The steel frame structure was installed in mid February, giving rise to the construction of the sleeper walls along with the progression of the block and beam flooring. Preparation is underway for the three stair cases to be fitted next week, which is in-line with expectation.

Lightening protection has been connected to the steel frame at ground level and all of the underground ducting and foul water service pipework has now been installed.

Scaffolding hand railing is currently being attached to the first floor steel frame in preparation for the steel decking works to commence.

Part of the on-site car park now has a tarmac finish, increasing our vehicle parking capacity and material storage. In addition, surface water from the carpark will be collected into the newly installed attenuation tank.

Temporary mains power has been connected to the site into the new meter cubicle and is due for site distribution to the welfare, gatehouse and main building. The main building will be set up – with a reduced voltage of 110Volts – to provide a network of lights to illuminate the work area along with sockets to make power available for the use of site power tools.

Over the next two weeks

After the fulfilment of the block and beam and the fitting of the three staircases, which are expected to reach completion by next week, we will see the start of the first floor decking installation. This will be followed by the lift shaft, blockwork to the pharmacy and continuation of the lightening protection.

Brickwork and steel framing systems will be next in the diary followed by the connection of the on-site gas meter and a connection for mains water being brought onto site.

Designs are currently underway for the sub-station foundations and a prefabricated sub-station, the construction of these will kick start in early March.

See you all again in a months time…
