Progress Statement

We are reporting the contract is on programme on all critical path operations. Work is progressing well in all areas. We hope to have completed all works along Meadowbank Road next week. Thanks for your patience and we hope we have kept any delays to a minimum. We are reduced the visits from the primary school classes to site on Friday afternoons to every 2 weeks as we are busy having floor coverings fitted and access is very restricted in most areas. We hope to arrange an open day before we hand over the school to allow members of the public to have a look at the superb facility the children will attend after summer break. We would also like to make all aware that we have CCTV cameras monitoring the complete site for safety and security purposes.
