COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | CONSTRUCTION FORWARD LOOK WEEK COMMENCING 23RD MAY 2022

Week commencing 23rd May 2022

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 23rd May 2022. 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.

There 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 and roofing works to this area continues along with the fit out of Terrace 5.

In Block D, works are progressing to the lift cores on the second and third floors, and external areas. We have encountered some delays with the demolition, and this will now continue for longer than anticipated and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. This will involve percussive equipment to remove the screed and make several new openings within the existing structures. The scaffolding to the perimeter of the building has commenced.

Block F internal trades continue with the apartment completions to the front of the block. Decoration is progressing internally. The remaining scaffold to the rear elevations is to be removed within the next few weeks once all window works have been completed.

The Block B brickwork to the façade is progressing, with the scaffold erection having commenced, along with the internal stud walls and first fix plumbing and electrical.

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.
