Dear Customers,

Going forward, rather than the quarterly update, we will be commenting monthly. At long last, we have a formal address for the development being 85 Royal Mint Street, London, E1. The concrete frame of the building was completed a few months ago and all cladding panels are now manufactured, 87% are installed and the remainder are either in transit or on site. There is a huge amount of fit-out works taking place with up to 300 operatives on site daily. Bathrooms – kitchens – underfloor heating – M&E,  are being installed and most of the internal partitioning within Blocks B and C are complete. The swimming pool is currently being water tested and work has commenced in the communal garden areas. The lifts in block B are now available for beneficial use which means the temporary hoist on the side of the building can shortly be dismantled. The lifts in block C will be ready before the end of June. One of our tower cranes will shortly be dismantled as all heavy lifting in the western sections have been completed. Last week, our mains electric supply was connected to the newly built substations. By way of update on the adjoining site, work is progressing well with the remainder of the encapsulation. Coffey’s, being our contractor for these rail works, have back to back weekend rail shutdowns so much of the track side elements are taking place, new lighting, new escape platforms and re-routing some of the cabling. Our contractors are still estimating completion for Blocks B and C for October with Block D being available in December. If this changes, we will immediately update this progress site.

His Excellency, Mr Charles Hay, MVO, British High Commissioner to Malaysia. Encouraging further investment into the UK.

Mr Anthony Loke, Malaysian Minister of Transport. He was particularly interested in the “building over rail concept” and the possibilities this may open up in Kuala Lumpur.

A 15 strong contingent from Jernhusen, Sweden. They are considering a large decking development, over railway infrastructure, in Stockholm and requested a visit of our London project. Mr Stuart Kirkwood, Development Director of Network Rail and Mr Norrie Courts, Director of Stations accompanied Jernhusen on this visit.
