20 weeks have passed since works started at the old Lift West site and they are certainly making a show. The main problems of old petrol tanks and contaminated soil have now been successfully addressed. The main structures of houses 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 are up, with the roofs and chimneys complete on 5, 6, 7 & 8. The ground works for 11, 12 & 13 are complete and the frames will be erected during the first week of October.
The first fixings are being carried out in 5 & 6 (the show houses) which will be ready for viewing after the Christmas holiday. Works are underway to the elaborate drainage system which will control the flow of the surface water from the site. Most of the building and drainage works will have to be complete before houses 1, 2, 3 & 4 are started as this area is needed to gain access to the site. At the moment the project is on target – lets hope we have a kind Autumn and Winter.24th September 2017
