The Pour begins

Posted on December 6, 2012 · Posted in General

Today is Thursday, December 6th and Lot 1 is having the concrete poured as we speak.

A building site is dynamic with many people involved and it is easy to let things slip.  I will summarise the events of the week.

On Monday our footings contractor commenced laying the base, installing the plastic membrane, the waffle pods, spacers, steel reinforcement and chairs.

I was advised on Tuesday that the pour for Lot 1 would occur  on Wednesday thus requiring pest control, plumber, council, engineer, other partners, bank and electrician to be in position in 45 minutes.  That didn’t happen thankfully but neither did the plan to Pour Lots 1 and 2 today.

Concreters must feel like movie starts as every man and his dog likes to stop by and have a look at the progress. I cant imagine a carpenter cutting up stud timbers would attract the same crowd.
