The work on the roof has been divided into 4 stages. These stages are as follows
Stage 1 – South West (Waitrose) corner.
Stage 2 – Main Block – East and remainder of South elevations
Stage 3 – Main Block – North and remainder of West elevations
Stage 4 – Minor Block – all elevations
Except for some minor aspects, Stage 1 and 2 of the new roofs and parapet walls installation have been completed within programme and budget. See below for some phtos of the completed work. If you look closely you can also spot Martin!
Meanwhile negotiations with the contractor for Stage 3 are being finalised and Festalfine will once again enter into a construction management form of contract with the contractor enabling the company and its construction management team to operate tight control on methodology and costs. Successful completion of Stage 3 towards the end of this year will represent a milestone in the progress of this current major works programme, with Stage 4 (Minor Block) due for commencement and completion in 2012.
