Another week has raced past and it was a productive one on site. During the week we have managed to progress the wall and roof framing, install some of the plywood to the lower roof, install roofing membrane to part of the lower roof, install the safety mesh on the main roof and install the scaffolding to the perimeter of the building.

Over the next week we will continue with the wall and roof framing, installing the metal roof to the main roof, installing more membrane roofing to the lower roofs and installing the pre-cast panels.

The main roof construction is interesting because it is designed to ensure there is no noise (or very little noise) transferred though it when it is raining. There is a layer of metal roofing installed with a 60mm layer of polyiso insulation board (like polystyrene) over that and a water-proof membrane over top. Underneath the roof you have a thick layer of insulation on top of the acoustic ceiling tiles, this will ensure you have a very quiet church in the heavy rain.
