Progress update

Pictures of the work on site...very exciting!!

The site is making progress with lots of diggers and builders on site.

The cut and fill process is almost complete. A soakaway (drainage) crate has been installed and backfilled and some very large manholes are now in place!

 

Our amazing head boy and girl officially opened the build with our local MP Tom Tugenhadt.


Work continues- foundations are poured!

This week the site has been busy. Fencing has been added to the site, the foundations have been poured and the cut and fill has continued!


New year progress.

This week the inspection chamber has been put in place and even in the mud and rain the site continues to move forward.


The building beginning to be cut out

We have just visited a very muddy site and it is really beginning to take shape. Excitingly the walls of our school are also now being built which is very exciting!


Rain Rain Rain!

This week the team on site have had to battle the rain. This has caused lots of problems but they are still making good progress.

See attached update photos for the week.

The site is moving ahead well and the ground works... the next few weeks will be very exciting.


Retaining walls and slab laying

This week the large retaining walls have been poured. The footprint of the school building has been prepared for the slab laying and drains are in place.


The footprint is complete!

The footprint of our school is now clearly visible and the concrete pour is almost complete. In the coming weeks the school will fly up which will be very exciting.

 

 


Week 1 of panel installation

This week the walls of our school have began to be lifted into place. All of the children have visited the site to witness this moment in history!

The crane is enormous and can be seen for quite some distance!

After just 4 days we already have a D&T classroom, year 1,2,3 and 4!


The shell of the building is almost complete!

The contractors have been working around the clock to put together the wooden structure. The whole footprint is complete and the walls are almost in. A few more days of the crane on site and then we will be moving onto fittings and cladding. 

I am now able to walk into classrooms and see the space and the light which is magnificent.

I am also meeting with numerous contractors to agree our play area space which is very exciting.... watch for further updates.

Final few weeks and it is all coming together!

Progress on the site is really coming together. As school closes the end is in sight and grounds workers, final decorators and snagging begins.

Sinks and toilets are in, floors need the final covering and it all just needs a good tidy... but the space is amazing!!
