A poor weather forecast meant the difficult decision to postpone Thursday's planned concrete pour for the main slab of the boat hall. This turned out to be a good decision with heavy rain on Thursday afternoon which would have spoilt the finish. The pour has been rearranged for Tuesday 23rd March with all of the steel fixing, shuttering and positioning of bolt sets all now ready and waiting.
Work was able to progress in other areas.
The north capping beam connecting the ILB and ALB ramps has commenced with blinding laid and steel fixing completed. Shuttering for this will start next week.
The timber piles around the southern and eastern perimeter are all installed and the piling equipment has been taken away. Planking across the piles has started and the upper terrace should be completed next week followed by the lower level.
Service and tanks installation on the northern part of the site has continued and will be going on next week before a final fill and completion of the capping beam.
