Construction update: November 2015

The concrete frame continues to rise around the nearly completed lift and stair cores, with the third floor now visible on the skyline. The basement and energy centre tunnel are being formed and will soon be waterproofed. The building of the external wall has also started in the NE Corner (opposite the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh West Mall Entrance next to the Chancellors Building) and consists of steel framing and windows, external insulation and cladding will then follow.
Precast concrete stair flights complete with handrails will arrive on site shortly and will be craned into position within the cores. The four tower cranes now proudly display illuminated sign boxes and a new access gate has been formed in the NE corner of the site. 350 operatives are onsite daily and over 60 deliveries per day are being catered for.
