Demolition work is nearly complete across the site, with only minor works still required to the rear of Block A - the Keybridge Lofts tower. This work will be completed in the coming weeks. Work to create the reinforced concrete frame for the 37-storey Keybridge Lofts continues to progress well, with the 19th floor complete, and work to the 20th ongoing. The building’s core is cast to 21st – 22nd floor level.
The building’s façade is also taking shape, with its structural steel frame installed up to 8th floor level, and window installation progressing well on level 9. Internal work for the Keybridge Lofts building is also well underway between levels 2 - 8.
Elsewhere on site the Keybridge scheme is taking great strides forward, with Block F complete. Furniture is being moved into the apartments, which will welcome their new residents from April 2019.
It is now just over a year until the new Wyvil Primary School extension will be complete, and work is starting to pick up pace on site. Our subcontractor, John F Hunt, has now nearly completed demolition work to clear the site, with only a few final areas left to be cleared with specialist equipment. Piling – laying deep foundations to allow the sites cranes to operate safely – was completed by the end of December. We are currently clearing the ground ahead of construction. We have also bought most of the materials needed to create the crane’s base to site.
