Programme Update: May 2017

Progress Update


The west stair core demolition works are due to commence this week (w/c 22/05/17).


We will be putting up extra signage around the surrounding area to inform members of the public of the closure of Tonbridge Walk. This was brought to our attention at the monthly CLG meeting, that pedestrians were still heading to walk through Tonbridge Walk.


The final level of the building has been poured and we celebrated this milestone by hosting a Topping Out Ceremony at the end of April. As well as the project team, the local cabinet member for community and Cllr Jonathan Simpson was in attendance. Apart from the rain, the ceremony was a great success!


May/June Update


We have now reached the final level of the construction of the internal lift shaft walls. The lift will run from basement 2 level up to level 10.


Works to the domestic risers are progressing well with a number of services and equipment being installed. We have also begun with the mechanical and electrical.


Externally, the scenic lift is in full swing. Excavations are underway and approx 4 metres of earth has been removed. The pile caps have been exposed and will be cut down to assist in the enabling works of the new slab for the base of the new lift.


Our next Considerate Constructors visit will be taking place in June and the site team is preparing for it to ensure a higher score from the last visit.


We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome our new Project Director, Robin Norman to the Camden Town Hall Annexe team. Robin has joined us from Mace Construction where he worked for a number of years as a Project Director. Robin will be overseeing the project and we look forward to working alongside him!
