Great to have the pre-cast panels installed this week, which look great too. The 2 large panels on the northern face weigh 10.3 tonne each so you may have noticed a large mobile crane on site to install them. We have also installed most of framing around the main church area and roof framing over the entry lobby which we hope to complete over the next few days. Whilst the weather over the last week has not been ideal, we can’t afford to let that delay us so we will be working Saturday to make up for any lost time (and the short week)

Over the next week the main focus will be “wrapping” the building up so the weather cannot affect the progress inside. We will also be completing the concrete floor inside the church and at the concrete outside the main entry, starting some more services “1st fix” and we may start some exterior cladding. Offsite we are planning and pricing the exterior landscape works which we hope to start in the next 2 weeks, manufacturing the aluminium and timber joinery and have orders in for various materials. If you have any further query please contact me :)
