Update for the 12th February, 2021
A vital step to secure the structure for the kitchen space and no easy task. The photo shows the team positioning the two steels before bolting them together. All they then have to do is lift the entire steel into position! Definitely a team task utilising brains, brawn and some nifty lifting gear on hire for the day. We look forward to showing the results next week.
Putting the two steells together is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. Check you have all the bits, orientate them the right way, check that they actually fit, and then go for it. And have the lifter ready to mount your creation in the right place.
And it's up as quick as a blink. Well not excatly as there was a lot of sweat and tears to get the steel up there, but as you can see, the guys have made huge progress in just a few hours.
If you have been following what has been going on, the Warriors have been digging down and stabilising the floor in The Kitchen and other backrooms. They have also demolished the wall between The Store Room and The Room of Doom. All that debris was removed during the week. Some very skillful driving was required to get the tipper truck into The Courtyard!
It's not just The School who were braving the cold; the wild birds of Clewer were taken care of by students who turned a pile of old Swan floorboards into nest boxes. At least one of these will end up in The Courtyard as a new home.
