It’s all systems go at our site in Cheltenham!
The site has been fully secured by the demolition team.
We’ve had some unauthorised access over the weekend and a diesel tank was overturned. The local community police are aware and will keep an eye on the site for us when they can.
All HSE signs are now clearly displayed.
Footpath closure signs are in place from Bloomsbury Street to Market Street. The footpath is now closed and scaffolding is in the process of being erected.
The end of Market Street has been closed as agreed with the highways authority and is now been used for skip storage and access. We have had to make the highways aware that a sink hole has formed in the road half way down the street.
We’ve ‘letter-dropped’ houses in Market Street, Bloomsbury Street and Stoneville Street, to make residents aware that works are now underway.
The demolition team continue as per the programme, however a small area of asbestos has been found behind a layer of plasterboard on the first floor. This is ‘notifiable’ and therefore cannot be removed for 14 days.
There is a daily log of personnel on site and this is being kept in the CDM file.
Western Power will install power units to plots 10 & 11, end of week commencing 4th of August. The demolition team will gun out an area of concrete to allow the board access to the existing cable.
We have drilled eight holes and fitted gas monitors to four, and await the results.
