The second storey framing at the rear of the site is complete, roof going on next week.
The weather has been against us, but works are slowly progressing upwards, with structural steel framing up and timber wall frames in lower level almost complete.
To get the project within budget, we reviewed the engineering design to change a large part of the structural steelwork to timber along with deleting some windows and non-essential items. The front floor is changed to timber frame with burnished concrete slab for the lower level, providing some thermal mass. A builder is appointed and we’re on track to start construction in May!!
