Site work is going well and the Library project is nearing completion. SWP have enjoyed working with the team, OSP Architecture and Sunninghill Construction.

This hybrid building was part steel framed superstructure with high and raking columns and curtain walling to the upper floor level, with a reinforced concrete frame for the remaining upper floor and lower floor arrangement. The steelwork is visible in one of the progress photographs as are the fair faced polished concrete columns. Nice to see some of the structure unclad!

Foundations are to be a specialist piling system to keep the main foundations relatively shallow and to bear on the slightly deeper chalk substrata.

Civil engineering should be quite straightforward, linking up the new drainage system with the original and provide additional soakaways in the chalk for the surface water.
