Our Capital Project Manager Catharine Kidd, braved today's dreich weather to provide us with a construction update:
The new building is really beginning to take shape with the sub walls and the beam and block floor structure now in place (brought in by the crane featured in an earlier post). The footprint and elevation of the new building can really be seen as the outline of the new spaces emerge from the muddy ground. On a good day (not today!), the views out across Loch Long that the new building will embrace can already be appreciated. We are anticipating the arrival and erection of the timber frame of the building over the next few weeks, the sole plates for fixing this are already in place.
|Foundations of new accommodation units and studios.|
|View across footprint of snug and meeting room (not a good day for appreciating the views!)|
