There has been quite a lot of development in the past couple of weeks both externally and internally within the site. The garden has been almost fully excavated, so full height scaffolding has been installed to enable us to access the basement and various levels. The beginnings of the delta damp proofing system have been installed in the basement floor, the masonry around the full height landing window has been built up, giving us a good idea of the amount of light that will come into the space, a lot of the mechanical and electrical installations have begun and roof works are now due to start. Let’s hope the snowy weather doesn’t disrupt this week’s progress too much!
