Main Contractor On Site (Building & Design Services) – January 2015
Building & Design Services our Main Contractor are continuing to make progress now with structural strengthening with new steel supports resin anchoring etc., for upgrading and improving / altering the fabric of the existing G&D building. Cashmandoo is also now working together with BDS on the natural stone and masonry repair, rebuilding and extensions – the finished areas not sealed yet but looking really good on the M&S side of the wall. Internally the new structure is taking shape with exposed original character and features where possible and now insulation going in for the first time in nearly 200 years! Externally adverse ground conditions that we found in the only areas that we could not access to make exploratory trail holes during the enabling works (Murphy’s Law as usual) have meant around 4 weeks delay in the excavation and construction of the new cellar and additional foundations– But we are pleased to say that the engineering details and all of the necessary negotiations, agreements and approvals are now in place, so this will re-start and progress at a good pace beginning during this week – Pictures from Friday 16th January 2015.
