SEPTEMBER CONSTRUCTION UPDATE AT SUGAR HOUSE ISLAND
We asked Pedro, Project Manager for Vastint UK, for an update on works on site.
“Within Dane’s Yard the envelopes are progressing well to 1 Dane’s Yard and 1 Sugar House Lane. The scaffolds will begin to be removed shortly to reveal the classic exteriors, as well as to allow the external works to be progressed. Internal works are ongoing in these buildings.
The frame has now been completed to 1 Cooperage Yard and work is progressing to 2 Dane’s Yard (which will be a live music venue and bar). The internal demolition within 3 Sugar House Lane is now complete and the frame is being built. The external cleaning and repair of the historic structure of The Sugar House is about to begin.
Botanical Mews, our first residential plot, is progressing, and the installation of the precast panels to the riverside block is making a visible difference to the building. The internal fit out works are continuing. The first apartments are at an advanced stage an exciting milestone after so much hard work.
The superstructure of R2 is at second floor level across the site, and the precast panels are currently being manufactured off-site. These will begin to arrive in November.
Piling has now finished on R3.
The on-site Energy Centre is in the final stages of commissioning and this will be providing the heating and hot water for the homes within Botanical Mews. Infrastructure works involving new drainage and utilities are currently being installed into Sugar House Lane (currently closed to traffic).
Remediation works and soil treatment are ongoing. This is an extensive process, however it is important as it significantly reduces the amount of material leaving the site, helping to contribute to reducing lorry movements.
This month we’ve undertaken a series of tow-path cleaning sessions with the team from JF Hunt Remediation to remove rubbish which had accumulated, and we hope those walking and cycling along by the river will have enjoyed an easier and more pleasant journey.”
