I’m a little late in posting this and it seems a while since the recent snow bought things to a halt for about a week. Snow covering the ground is a health and safety hazard. On a building site it means that you cant see the holes in the ground – and there are lots of them, big and small! Not only that, but to pour concrete the temperature has to be above 3C. The diggers remained silent until the rain over the weekend washed the snow away and work could commence again. The project is now behind schedule, but indications are that it will be back on track soon!
With no activity out on site it gave the opportunity to have a quick look around the offices where everything is managed from. The walls are covered with plans, diagrams and schedules; the shelves are full of relevant files and documentation; and Ashmount’s head Dave Thomas has his induction to the do’s and don’ts of being on site.
