COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | CONSTRUCTION FORWARD LOOK W/C 19TH JULY 2021

As part of our commitment to the local community here is our Lookahead 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 19th July 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.

This week, there will be plant and machinery movements around the areas of Terrace 5 and Block G located adjacent to the Railway Path. Further excavation works will continue adjacent to Green Oak Crescent for the removal of the existing ground in order to continue the foundations to Block B using excavators and dumpers, with deliveries of muckaway vehicles. We will be continuing with the tarmac and brick paving to the access roads between Block E and Block D and access road between Block F and Terrace 3 off Co-Operation Road.

With regards to Block F, we have completed the erection of scaffolding to the front of the building but there will be some ongoing minor adjustments to the existing scaffolding on other elevations, including the installation of scaffolding to the roof area on the Townhouses. Other ongoing work in this area includes the removal of blockwork to both the front and rear elevations by our workforce on the scaffolding, and breaking out brickwork at roof level to Block F Townhouses. 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. We will be continuing with the installation of plasterboard partitions which will generate intermittent noise by the use of power tools. We will also be continuing with the installation of the timber trusses to Block F Townhouses this week and continue with the installation of felt and batten to the roof.

Elsewhere on site, we expect ongoing deliveries including articulated vehicles via the site entrance on Greenbank Road. We will be working on Saturday from 8am – 1pm with Terrace 3 internals and groundworks between Terrace 3 and Terrace 4. Partition works will also be carried out to the 3rd Floor of Block F Apartments internally.

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 have 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.

On social media please follow @ChocFactoryBris on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as we will keep this updated with any relevant news and updates.  For those without regular access to digital media, a community noticeboard is displayed on the hoarding at the entrance to site on Greenbank Road.
