COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | CONSTRUCTION FORWARD LOOK W/C 13TH SEPTEMBER 2021

Week commencing 13th Sept 2021

As part of our commitment to the local community here is our look ahead at building works that will be in progress next week:

We are pleased to provide the following information regarding planned construction works for the week of the 13th Sept 2021. 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.

We continue with some minor snagging to Block E adjacent to Terrace 3 (behind the red and white fencing) with occupation planned for later this month.

The Terrace 3 houses continue with final snagging taking place. There also continues to be plant and machinery movements around the areas of Terrace 5 and Block G located adjacent to the Railway Path as the masonry works to this area continues.

In Block D, the testing of the existing structure has been completed. Further demolition works will be required in the future.

Block F roof to the rear section continues, whilst the internal trades continue with the apartment completions to the front of the block. Flooring and tiling is progressing internally, whilst we will continue with snagging of the rear elevation in order to strike the scaffolding shortly.

Elsewhere on site, we will be continuing with the internal fitout of Terrace 4 with the rear scaffolding removed. Internally, 2nd fix joinery and decoration continues.

The Block B foundations and slabs continues to progress very well, with further walls concreted this week.

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.

The terms agreed with the local supplier towards the end of last year to provide additional parking facilities off-site has continued to have had the intended positive effect of reducing the amount of sub-contractors parking on the public highway close to site. Nevertheless, we shall continue to monitor contractors’ parking on public highways and will make contact with BCC Parking Services in the event of vehicles found to be parked illegally.
