Good progress on building slab

Saturday 6 Mar 2021

Work has gone well this week.

Ground beams to west of the building were poured on Tuesday with shuttering and reinforcement steelwork being set up for the rest of the building slab. With concrete pours scheduled for the following two Thursdays, the building slab will be complete by mid-March as planned.

The temporary new footpath to the beach is now open and has already proved useful in providing much needed space for delivereies and plant movements.

The last precast concrete planks have been installed on the ALB ramp, the foot of the ramp once again being uncovered to allow access. Grouting of bolts and recesses is under way and will be completed soon. Following this, timber baulks will be installed on the sides of the ramp and, in due course, handrailing.

Timber works round the edge of the sheet piles and capping beam are now due to start. Timber and piling plant has arrived and the sand previously piled around the sheet pile wall has been dug away to allow access. The path maintained to allow the lifeboat crew  to get to the existing lifeboat station has been realigned.

Services and tanks are due to be installed on the now much clearer northern part of the site. Once this done, the capping beam can finally be completed between the ILB and ALB ramps.
