December 2017

Dear Customers,

 

We are fast approaching the festive Christmas period and would like to express best wishes to all of our buyers.

 

As you can see from the regular pictorial updates, our main contractor, Midgard, are making good progress. The piling for the superstructure was completed in August and since Midgard took possession of the site, they have been continuing the groundworks, exposing the piles, cropping as required, installing steel cages and pouring main concrete beams. At the same time they have continued the installation of the sheet piling that abuts the public highway, removing existing floor slabs within the railway arches and advancing the attenuation tank structure. As always, since the work is taking place adjoining or within railway structures, the level of supervision is exhaustive.

 

To give you some idea as to look ahead programme for the next couple of months, Midgard will continue with the ground works, complete the installation of the attention tank, install 2 cranes, construct the concrete columns for the steel trusses that will sit over the encapsulation works, start works on slip forming the core to Block D, and reconstruct the floors to the railway arches including the new drainage systems.
