Still 2nd fixing

Second fix work continues.

Some electric cables were lost while boarding over ceilings and walls. This caused some minor opening up to re locate cables, in two or three locations.

Decoration continues.

2nd Fix Electrics

Second fix electrics commenced.

There was some ambiguity with regards to the securing of the light fittings which was clarified by the lighting supplier.

The down-lights in the pod were substituted for surface light fittings. Although not an ideal solution, it was adequate.

Internal decoration commenced on site. Although this was a little premature, we needed to gain some time back.

Waterproof testing

At the end of September, EMH team members visited a couple of other retrofit projects in the North east of England to assess and benchmark progress on project implementation and to discuss any similar problems arising. Project Cottesmore has similar project members, managers and a significant overlap in the supply chain with the projects at Greenford Road in Newcastle and the Isos property in North Shields. The image show the property in Newcastle and the detailing on the roof and bay window produced as an off-site pod. Looks waterproof from the outside!
