It’s been a while since I have managed to get on site to get some more pictures – but when I did, it was yet another grey day – I’m hoping for some blue sky next week when the mobile crane arrives for a day to load the roof panels up onto the roof. All of the steel work is now up and over half of the slab sections are now in. Things are progressing well and even with the recent inclement weather the builders are managing to keep on schedule.
Some of the insulation panels are in place and the building is beginning to take shape. The view below is looking from the back of the site towards the Food Tec and Art & Design areas. Once everything is complete no one should be driving into Art & design in a yellow dumper truck as is happening below!
The view below is again from the back of the site along the primary side of the school. it’s possible to see the foot print of the class room ‘pods’ – an area of each classroom with a lower roof above (supported on the horizontal steel attached half way up the verticals)
There’s a small strip of land which will be left in it’s natural habitat to enable the badgers to pass by the school without interruption – and even while the building is going on this is kept clear for them!
