Phoenix HQ - Update No. 5

Another month has passed and once again it is time for the Phoenix HQ construction update.
The Site (26.04.2013)
The most significant change that has occurred on site since the last blog post is that the Barn building's structure and SIPs are now in place. The Barn will act as a extra community space or village hall type structure and already has its first booking for a party next January.

Inside the main building the north lights in the roof are now installed and boarding removed. This has transformed the first floor from a dark and slightly dank environment to a spacious space awash with a very even north light. Making what seems to me to be ideal working conditions.

The majority of the work now taking place is now the installation of Mechanical and Electrical portions of the design. The electrical trunking and trays have almost all been installed and soon we will see the exposed galvanised conduits appearing on the walls.

The other exciting thing that has has happened on the project is that on the 12th of March there was a topping out ceremony attended by representatives of both the community and the project team.
