The King Street skyline has now changed with the erection of our tower crane on the Kings Crescent Site.
With the crane on site, we are now ready to take delivery of the steel beams which will form the frame structure of the building and begin constructing the main building.
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
We are now well on the way with the bulk excavation of the car park. Whilst we do this we have archeologists on site investigating a medieval trench which until now has not been fully mapped. Some excited diggers!!
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.
You can now see the shape of the building starting to take shape. What is being constructed here is the “pile cap.” This will form the base upon which the steel structure will sit and the building constructed. Over the next couple of weeks this cap will be complete and we will be starting to excavate for the underground car park – another milestone!
