We need to pull back time lost due to the surprises caused by the gas main and cables we weren’t expecting. Groundwork contractors O’Donnells bring in as many men and machines as they can to help us get back on track. At one time, our site was underneath the Masshouse Circus flyover and many large sections of steel and concrete remain underground bearing witness to this history.
The next concrete floor is protected as the heavy work carries on around it. For the engineering-minded it’s a fascinating time (honest) as the building starts to take shape.
The floor of the service yard is cast and used to lay out the mat of steel reinforcing bars for the next section of floor.
