Site Progress - April
Work in the ground is well underway for the new workshop building. This area has undergone dewatering to enable the contractors to dig below the water table to install drainage and foundations. The process involved inserting a series of well points around the whole area, these were then attached to pumps which extract and filter the water.
Below ground drainage and foundation works have since been started. Concrete pad foundations have been completed for the workshop building which will form the base for the steel frame of the building in the next few months. Concrete has also been poured between the pad foundations forming the first visible footprint of the new buildings. As we begin to move out of the ground over the next couple of months we’ll be updating the website with more photographs from the site and look forward to sharing major milestones as the museum takes shape.
