Following on from the completion of the building slab last week, upstands have been constructed and work started for the damp proof course around the building. For the first time, the outline of the building and the areas within it are becoming visible. This will be even more obvious next week when the first areas of blockwork are constructed to the north and east.
Work on chambers to the north and south has continued, with fill and compaction to both areas, in readiness for the apron slabs in front of and behind the building to be built.
The timber work around the sheet piled perimeter of the site and capping beam has been completed and the terraces formed will now be filled and compacted.
Work on the ALB ramp will start again with timber baulks to be drilled and fitted and further grouting where required.
As contractors from Reside start to work on the building, the present Mackley team will be finishing their work in the next few weeks. The final tank, the washdown tank, needs to be installed and all the services within site linked up and completed. Some service works external to the site will also be completed, including service runs for the fuel lines and some chambers.
