 July 2018 Update

Construction on phase one commenced on the 4th of June, with the site mobilisation by the construction company, this was soon followed by ditch diversionary works, foundation excavations and the placement of the piling matt. The piling matt provides stability for the piling rigs and prevents such heavy plant from slipping in to the ground, especially important considering the proximity of the lake and the high water table. The piling rigs will be used to drive steel tubes down in to the ground to establish a firm footing in to the chalk strata some fifteen meters below the surface on to which the foundation slab will be placed.
