No, that’s not a comment on the status of the project, it’s a comment on my ability to keep up to date with posts on the progress of the new Ashmount School. The project is well on schedule, even slightly ahead. The pictures below are from the end of June.
This is a similar view to the last post, looking into the main entrance. The silver reflection is not the final finish! It is the insulation panels to keep the school warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The floor is ‘poured’ (or rather ‘pumped’ from a cement mixer). The under-floor heating pipes are all buried in this – so there are no radiators on the walls. It would be interesting to know how many miles of pipe are buried in the floor.
The swimming pool still looks much the same as it has done for a while, but the work goes on and it wont be long before the students of Ashmount School are enjoying a dip in it.
Up on the roof things are pressing ahead. The picture above shows some of the final details. The windows pictures are the upper windows in the post 16 classrooms. All the classrooms have windows on bot sides to get lots of natural light in.
