New Year : New Holes.

Don’t you just love the destruction at the commencement of a new job?  SPA’s Finchley Road project has started on site and the Contractors have begun stripping out and forming openings.

So far, we’ve learnt about some of the more unusual places asbestos can be hidden and how to remove a masonry wall that is sitting on nothing – we hope.

Watch this space…

The works a quickly moving on...

After 10 Weeks on site, we are very excited to see our project is rapidly taking shape:
while works on the First Floor have created a large open space, the structural walls at the ground floor were removed and temporary props held up the floor above until they have been replaced by new timber construction and steelwork.
All finishes have now been removed revealing different stages of beautiful brickwork, we can finally see the effect of bringing natural light to the ground floor.

Stay tuned for our next site visit to see the new opening up of the new patio!
