Games Room & Atrium Roof Take Shape

The last week have seen some major milestones met in relation to a number of critical path elements in the refurbishment.  Lipman has made excellent progress in relation to the courtyard, games room and roof. Below are a number of shots taken yesterday which show some key achievements.

1. The framework for Games room, lounge and stairway entrance were completed

2. The courtyard skylight holes have been in-filled (note far right partially covered there is a section for one panel of glass floor skylights)

3. The first elements of the roof structure arrived on site and the first installation occurred (the installation of the rest of the columns should be completed today).

As well as the above, good progress is being made in the rooms and common rooms. Most rooms are now carpeted, most have some joinery installed, and the first carpet for halls and common rooms is going down. The work on fire safety is well advanced with a large part of the sprinkler system in place on all floors. All in all, progress is good and Lipman and its staff are working valiantly to meet our tough deadlines. In spite of the unpredictable weather the project is on track except for a few non-critical path elements such as the guest bedrooms downstairs.
