All of the copper roofs to the buildings are now almost finished as the final and largest roof to the exhibition building is nearing completion. With the external walls that have been constructed over the last few weeks, the space is beginning to take shape and the incredible backdrop to the museum collection is in full focus.
Thomas Armstrong has been able to take full advantage of the mild winter weather building up the walls of the café, learning space and reception. The copper roof has been completed to the learning centre building and the cladding specialists have moved on to covering the reception roof. The structural wall system has also started on the main exhibition building, the largest of the buildings, beginning to enclose the space and frame more of the views out to the lake.
All efforts continue to construct the walls and roofs of the new museum buildings making the most of the mild autumn weather. Following on the from the café, work to the learning centre roof is well underway and the external partition walls are under construction. The roof the reception and shop area is also under construction following the sequence around the buildings.
As part of the Esperance Programme, a series of projects that schools have been taking part in this year, students from the Lakes School spent time with us in June, documenting the developments at Windermere Jetty.
With all of the building structures up, the construction team are working hard to build the walls and roofs of the remaining buildings. The café now has its copper roof and the external partitions are being erected. These have framed the incredible views created by the large north and west facing windows giving a glimpse of what the space will be like when complete.
