July 2018


July has seen the continued development of the field level slab, the campus level swimming pool area wall has been completed. The RC works continue and making good progress assisted by the good weather.

The steelwork has been installed from mid point towards the College terrace, bringing the structure from field level to the roof. Initial pipework for the swimming pool has commenced.

August 2018

During August we should see the steel frame commencing south, spanning over the swimming pool. Decking should also commence for the upper floors.

Fire protection to the steel frame will also begin.
