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..........

Did anyone notice at the weekend if any further progress had been made with the roof structure?

Thanks

Late last week all the trusses were up and, I think, joists going in for the flat bits.

Extract from SVRLive [published 28 November 2017]
http://www.svrlive.com/bridgnorth-development

Works continues to progress the roof towards a watertight building which will allow the internal trades to commence. All roof trusses are now in place along with the supporting steel/wood construction for the refreshment room flat roof. The sub-contractors who will be undertaking this have met with our designer Bob Marrows to make sure they have a complete understanding of our requirements as we will be using a material in the roof construction they have not yet encountered. This is a product known as “foamglas” blocks which are literally foamed silica glass and have a high insulation value. Elsewhere the gable ends have been completed and the on site building joiner is constructing all the other timber structures required.

Donations continue to build up in the SVR Charitable Trust's ring-fenced fund in support of the Bridgnorth Development project.

Today





It's actually very difficult to see any detail.

Seeing all the roof trusses in place gives a better idea of the length of the building.
Lets hope this relatively dry weather continues so that the roof can be made weather-tight soon.

It is difficult to judge progress on the roof from the "daily snapshot" viewpoint on SVRLive, but with storm Caroline and much colder weather imminent, hopefully over the past few days there has been a big push to get the building watertight.
Has anyone an uptodate report please? (ie more recent than Mr Bond's report of 28/11 and LMS2968's images from the 30th?)
Thanks

Patience, already. I will be there tomorrow and will have a look, as usual. Watertight means not only a roof but doors, windows and glazing too. I saw no sign of joinery last week. In its current condition it is not going to come to any harm anyway.
