Build Week 8 - Transition

After the flurry of excitement getting the shell of the building up, we had a week of preparation for the next stages of the build.

The first task was to get the roof sorted out - it needs to be waterproofed before the sedum finish can be installed. To prepare for this, the roof has to have a ply deck added which will then be waterproofed with liquid rubber.

This week, work on the blue brick external plinth wall started and the hunt for the timber cladding began. The material finishes have to be agreed with Planning before the facades can be completed.

We had a very positive moment when the Building Inspector from the Local Authority visited and said he would like to put the project forward for their awards! We are thrilled and moments like this really make all the time and effort spent on the design and specification of the project worthwhile
