Watch the development of the Esther Simpson Building project. We will be updating this time lapse every month so you can see the latest progress.

Progress below:

  • Steelwork has commenced on site and we are currently building the first phase of the works.  This starts from the side nearest the Substation working towards Cloberry Street.  Within this element is one of the first staircases to be installed also.
  • Once the first part of the frame is complete we will install nets to protect operatives before they commence installing the metal sheets which will become part of the floor structure
  • Due to failure in the surface to the temporary nursery drop off bays we have organised for this to be replaced with a fresh layer to ensure longevity for the scheme.
  • The next stage of structural works will require us to concrete the higher floors along with forming the basement concrete box housing the plantroom.
