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.
This month we have reached a significant milestone in the project and have now erected all six building structures that will form the new Windermere Jetty. The final foundations for the learning centre and reception were poured and once ready the steel frames were quickly erected making a full complement of buildings. The next step is to weld the frames which will then allow the superstructure to begin.
