Works and Progress
Work to the site continues to progress well on the main build for SQP1.
On site, we are currently working on our core and slab construction and preparing our basement levels for handover and consequently start of welfare fit-out.
In the office we are busy preparing to welcome our next contractor on site - Yuanda. They are due to join the SQP team in late November 2017, with the first facade panels scheduled for delivery in January 2018.
We have also recently welcomed Focus onto site. They have taken over our logistics, including our gates and deliveries. We are looking forward to a very successful few years with Focus on board helping us manage crucial aspects of our operations, especially as we will be welcome numerous contractors to site over the next year or so.
Welcome to the Apprentices
In September 2017, 5 new apprentices from the Berkeley ran REACH Apprenticeships Scheme joined the team at South Quay Plaza, taking roles in business admin, site management, logistics management, civil engineering and carpentry. Welcome and best of luck to the 5 of you!
Tower Crane Erection
Following the successful erection of TC1 in January, in April 2017 we welcomed TC2 onto site.
Currently TC1 and TC2 stand at 80.35m and 92.35m respectively and will reach 242.35m and 234.35m by the end of the project.
Core Construction - L09
Following the successful assembly of our Automated Climbing System, we have commenced our core construction.
Currently we are at L09 of our core construction. We are aiming to reach L68 and the top of SQP1 in Q2 2019.
Superstructure Slab Construction - L03
As our core construction progresses, our slab construction is closely following approximately 4-6 levels behind.
Currently we have concreted our main swimming pool slab at L01 and vitality swimming pool at L02 with works progressing on L03 and above. We aim to complete all 68 floors by Q3 2019.
Internal Core Works - L02
In order to minimise waste, noise and disruption to both the environment and the local community we have opted for pre-cast elements for the majority of our internal core works.
We are utilising twinwall and pre-cast staircases, which are delivered to site and dropped into place.
We have now almost completed our basement construction. Expanded have handed over our B2 slab and B1 is due for handover in November 2017.
This has allowed other trades, such as Trident to commence works. Works on our new welfare facilities, located at B2 is also due to commence in November 2017.
DDE Access Road
We are very happy to announce that we have almost completed our basement works, allowing us to establish a new DDE access road.
Thank you very much for your cooperation during this phase of works.
The SIDU has now been energised. TC1 and TC2 have been made live, allowing the removal of both of their independent generators.
Our welfare facilities are now also running on temporary electrics, significantly reducing our carbon emissions.
We have also spent some time thinking about the environment and how we can contribute. Earlier in the year we planted 7 canes of raspberries on the patio of our project office.
We have now expanded on this initiative adding a few chilly plants to the collection.
