Renovation Diary: 11th February, 2022
The week has been about tiling. And more tiling. And yes you guessed it, even more tiling. The Kitchen and The Cold Store need a lot of tiles and it has taken an army of volunteers to do it. Even the students from our school have got involved which gives them some unique experiences.
Will probably miss someone, apologies if so (and do let us know). Thanks must go to Ian, Trevor, Tony, Lexie, Richard A, Richard D amongst others. Even whilst they were working long hours, they kept a smile on their face.
It is hard to state the amount of tiling required, from just aboove the floor right up to the ceiling. And with windows, doors, sockets, etc to work round too, it has been very time consuming. These photos do not do it justice what they Warriors have achieved.
McFarlane Telfer came in to put in the plumbling for the sinks, etc by the windows. Whilst this appears a big step forward, it needs to be disconnected to allow the grouting on the tiles before being re-connected. That said, the installation did invaluable experience for the apprentices.
The Storeroom is now in a position it can be used properly. All the boarding, plastering and painting has been completed. The electrics are in and there is lighting, fire detection and emergency exit signs all working. The bar team have been bringing out the various boxes, etc that have been secreted all round the building and putting them in the newly erected shelving units.
