Welcome to the sixth monthly update aimed at keeping you up to speed on the new Milner Centre for Evolution project.
The site manager, Firhan Rudorf-Saeed is on site throughout the working day, and should be the first point of contact for any issues. They are currently holding weekly meetings with the users of Building 4SA, and attend the monthly University contractors meeting with a view to keeping staff and students informed of the works and to give notice of any potential disruption.
The second stage of the groundworks has now commenced and will last a period of 2-3 weeks. The works will involve completing the external drainage around the perimeter of the building. During this period there will be some element of noisy works due to the depth of the drainage. The noise and vibration will be intermittent throughout the working day, and will take us into the middle of July.
As with last month’s update, road conditions are continuously monitored, and a road sweeper is being utilised as and when required. There is no further work planned in the immediate future which will affect the road outside our site compound.
A combination of weather delays and other unforeseen elements have meant that the precast concrete plank installation for first floor and roof is approximately 95% complete. The middle of July will see the return of the 130TN mobile crane and total completion of this element of works in order to allow other trades to follow straight on.
WRW were proud to play host to two of the University’s Civil Engineering students who were with them for a five day placement during June. They hope that the experience was an enjoyable one, and gave them an insight into the challenges faced on a daily basis within the Construction Industry
As always, we appreciate your patience and understanding whilst the construction phase is ongoing.
