Good progress on site has been made and remains on track for a completion date 4Q23.
All pile foundations have been completed. Ground beams excavated and poured and the concrete frame has commenced. Sequencing on site means that works commence with block B and work towards the northern end of the development. The core in Block B has been completed, the smaller of the cores in block A has commenced and has been poured up to floor 5. Reinforcement and formwork is being erected to the northern core in Block A. The ground floor concrete slab has been poured to around 70% of the development, with columns and first floor being poured to around 20% of the blocks. In addition to the concrete frame being progressed significantly in the period, all peripheral drainage has been installed and completed along with the permanent site set up.
Looking ahead and over the coming period the focus is on progressing the frame further to facilitate follow on trades commencing on site. During the next reporting period it is anticipated that the following trades will commence their works on site;
1. Structural Framing System (SFS) / External Walls
4. Mechanical & Electrical Installations
Works on site remain on programme and will generate ever increase pace of works once the frame has progressed enough to allow follow on trades to commence on site in vacant areas of the development. Average site operative numbers are around 60 on a daily basis and expect this number to grow significantly in the next reporting period.
