Dear Customers,

England won the cricket World Cup for the first time in history and today is the start of the Ashes. Nearly as important, the UK has a new Prime Minister who is predicting a very positive outlook for the coming years – time will tell but in the meantime, we are in for an interesting and potentially turbulent few months. We have received our formal certification for BREEAM standards (buildings performance/sustainability) achieving a rating of “Excellent” for the shell and core works. With the exception of the area immediately behind the temporary lift hoists (which are currently being dismantled) and the main entrance, all cladding panels are now installed. Landscapers have started, preparing the communal garden areas for decking and planting. The passive air vents in the communal areas are now fully enclosed and the man safe systems for the abseilers are installed. The passenger lifts in both Block B and Block C are now in beneficial use. Kitchens are installed in Block B up to level 9 and the first of the kitchens are now being installed in Block C. Our programme currently provides for all kitchens, bathrooms and flooring in Block B to be fully installed this month. The new retail unit fronting Royal Mint Street is now glazed and the brickwork to the front elevations is almost complete. Works are progressing well on the adjoining site with extraction systems installed and the lower level dig, which will ultimately create a pressurised escape from track level.
