The New Year saw some amazing progress being made at the project in respect both the new build and conversion element.
Week 1 saw the tiling commence of the luxury and spacious bathrooms, tiled floor to ceiling. The bath panels will be tiled subsequent to 2nd fix M&E works. 7 apartments constructed in the conversion element were mist coated in full.
The balcony floor finishes were installed along with handrails and the roof felted ready for construction to commence for the amazing penthouses.
The apartment walls were studded in respect of the 1st & 2nd floor extension forming 4 apartments. The layout is even more impressive than envisaged by the plans.
Materials were delivered to site to start the exciting penthouse element. In order to raise them to the fourth storey a telehandler arrived on site.
Whilst the materials were loaded out 1st fix M&E took place in the 4 rear extension new build apartments and stud-work loaded with insulation for both acoustic and thermal benefits bringing the apartments in line with the latest regulations. Plasterboard was then loaded out to allow boarding to commence.
In the conversion element the flooring started to be laid and these apartments are now taking shape and are reaching completion.
The construction team continued with the aggressive build timeline.
The team commenced capping the underneath of the hang over and running extraction through the ceilings and out of the elevation of the building.
All apartments have been 1st Fix M&E and the 4 apartments contained wihtin the new extension insulated.
Timbers were installed throughout to allow TVs to be fixed to the walls creating more space in each apartment.
4 further bathrooms were fully tiled and grouted with casings installed.
The team took delivery of the EWI Render Board to allow the external coating to be applied once fixed to the structure. The shower panel towers for the shower rooms were also delivered in readiness for installation.
We saw unprecedented levels of rainwater with Storm Christoph so the team worked hard to ensure the building was completely water tight which was a great success with no sign of water ingress.
The rapid progress set by Nicholson Construction continued throughout January.
The final week saw the render board to the rear external elevation completely installed ready for the rendering team to give the project its final appearance.
The 7 apartments which form the PDR element had all skirting and architrave installed and kitchen deliveries finalised. All the bathrooms were completely tiled ready to be 2nd fixed and dressed.
The apartments in the rear extension boasting balconies were completely boarded and loaded out with materials ready for the plasterers to commence work.
The walls for the penthouses in the roof extension were set out ready for the joists to be craned up and installed (weather permitting).
The appliances for the entire project were ordered awaiting delivery when the development has reached its final stages.
