The sun was finally shining when I headed up to site with my camera to catch the mobile crane on site for the day. It was there to load half of the roof panels up onto the steel structure ready for the roofer to start the fitting process which will continue over the next few months.
The crane arrived, pushed out the four stabilisers shown in the picture below. The crane then ‘unfolded’ itself. The driver then became the operator as he climbed into the lift fitted on the side of the crane and then went up into the cab to begin his work.
The crane was able to reach across the full width of the school. Steel panels for just over half of the school where lifted into position ready for the roofers to commence their work. it’s a long process with the steel panels, insulation layer and final board all to be fitted over the entire area of the school.
Below can be seen the swimming pool, situated at the front of the school. The contractors responsible for all aspects of the pool begin next week. Note the ‘gluelam’ beams above the pool. These will be visible from the inside pool area.
