Had not previously heard of an Engineering services office. Where exactly is this mess room/kitchen facility. Is it perhaps in the leased buildings at the end of the lane adjacent to the boiler shop?
yes!

Viewed today, there are still about half of the roof trusses to go on the building


As far as I can make out, initially enough trusses and their bracing have been put up to allow the gable ends be built. I was told by someone who ought to know that the gables would be vulnerable in high winds if not tied.

Perhaps looking at the building in its unfinished state is misleading, and there will be adequate space in the new refreshment room.


In my experience, at this stage of a build (walls up but no roof, ceilings or finished floor level) the rooms always seem disappointingly pokey, having shrunk alamingly from the once vast floor slab. Plastered out they look big, until brought down to reality again by furniture.

The progress report from Mr Bond says that the building will be brought into use with temporary roofing, pending the delivery next march of the slates.

The Glos-Warks new station building at Broadway looks smart roofed with corrugated material ( as is Toddington) so hopefully we see something smart, even if temporary, on the Bridgnorth building.

You can always re-use something like corrugated sheeting later on another project.

The latest posting on SVR Live 13/11 suggests the brickwork is finished. Is that correct? Would a celebratory pint for the brickies be in order?

Still a chimey (flue) to build (update 7/11)?

Standing on the footbridge on Saturday taking a few photos of the progress, the chap next to me was doing the same, and commented "I wonder which few bricks I bought" to which I replied "me likewise".

The good thing about the latest share issue is hopefully a goodly number of new shareholders, even if-like me-in a modest way, and I suppose a sense of pride in what is being created at Bridgnorth.

Next time I visit I hope the building is roofed and weather-tight.

I look foreward to my first coffee and cake in the new refreshment area !

Belated thanks to Sue Thomas for the further images on SVR Live.-Appreciated.

Rob

The difference between roofed and weather-tight is a matter of doors and windows. These are often a source of embarrassing delay. Let's hope not so in this case.

Probably more than a pint after cutting 13,000 bricks in half..........
