Renovations Diary: 19th March, 2021

As some of the kitchen equipment starts to arrive the Weekday Warriors have been hard at work preparing the site. Another skip was delivered early this morning as the tidying up continues. With new ceiling joists ready to be secured and a new staircase on order real progress is being made.

The team have also inserted SFJC Safety Fast Joist Caps into the backwall that will then be used to further support The School Floor at the point The Kitchen extraction transits through. In the nicer weather, the lads were treating the rafters before insertion.
