CONSTRUCTION LOOK FORWARD W/C 20TH JULY 2020

Construction forward look w/c 20th July 2020

We are pleased to provide the following information regarding planned construction activity for the week commencing 20th July 2020. Please note that the work we have planned may sometimes change. We will do our best to keep you updated with any material changes that may affect you.

This week, we will recommence the concrete repair works to Block D columns adjacent to Co-operation Road, along with work to the concrete frame. We expect to generate some noise as we break out and excavate concrete externally for the provision of new drainage runs in the area adjacent to Blocks C and D, using excavators with pecker attachments, rollers and removal wagons. As always, we will monitor noise and vibration levels daily to ensure these continue to remain within permitted levels.

With regards to Block F, we will continue the erection of scaffolding to the front of the building while making minor adjustments to the existing scaffolding on other elevations. Other ongoing work in this area includes the removal of blockwork to both the front and rear elevations by our workforce on the scaffolding. There will be a continuation of the excavation of the ground internally along with the installation of drainage runs externally, for which we will be using excavators with pecker attachments, dumpers, diggers and rollers both inside and outside. Internally, we will be installing new blockwork, fixing new brick ties and installing scaffolding which will generate some drilling noise as we safely fix this to the walls.

Elsewhere on site, we will be continuing with the installation of scaffolding to Terrace 2 and Block E. Concrete deliveries are expected during the course of the week as we continue with the foundations to Block F and Terrace 4. New brickwork will continue to Block E and Terrace 2 adjacent to Co-operation Road and to Terrace 3 and 4.

A towable water bowser remains in use to dampen down work areas around the site on a regular basis. In addition to this, we have the provision of a water cannon which is being used for dust suppression which is situated in the area of Block F by the elevation closest to the railway path. Following resident feedback we have now installed an acoustic quilt to the generator located adjacent to Green Oak Crescent which will reduce the noise impact to the neighbouring properties.
