Rods of steel

Rods of steel - site update June 2011

Steel rods are placed

An amazing amount of steel reinforcing goes into these floors at the upper levels. As the concrete cures, it is tensioned by steel wires running through the length and breadth of the floor. The curved plastic pipes will be used to pump grout onto the cables to fix them in place as the floor is laid, then they’ll be cut off.

I took this picture while showing round a local property agent. ‘It’s cold on site today,’ he said to the steel fabricator. ‘Not if you’re working it isn’t,’ replied the fabricator!

Many a true word…
