For those who read our blog on a regular basis, you will have seen similar equipment back in December 2017 and January this year when we were completing the main piling operation. Well, the piling guys are back on site ready to install the intermediate piles across the remainder of the site.These piles again will form the foundations for structural steel supports
The pile cap is now complete as can be seen in the picture above What you can now see and envisage is the size and perimeter of the building. From this base, we will be erecting the steel structure with the help of a crane soon to be on site. Our next phase involves the excavation of the ground and the underground car park. This should occur over the next week or so which again will give us a different aspect of the finished building.
This last week has seen increased activity with wagons taking away earth and general rubble form the surface. Now that levels are determined we can now start laying the hardcore for the piling mat on which the piling rig will sit.
You can now start to see the outline of the building that will be and realise how expansive the site is.
We hope to be piling before Christmas and into the New Year and then the real work starts. We will keep you all posted..
