Hi all.

The last few days have been relatively normal in the way of construction proceedures. Obviously many steps taken in the foundation stage of the construction phase of this project have been anything but normal. The digging and breaking the pile tops , leaving the rebar protruding so it can be tied into the raft rebar at a later date, is quite normal.

Admittedly, they aren't breaking the pile tops per se, but instead the concrete rings around the outside of the piles in the case of this project, but the technique is the same.

I think we will see preparation for the pouring of the raft slab soon.


Ray.

I wonder why they didn't just excavate down to this level before hand digging the piles though. Surely it would have been quicker, as well as saving a lot of workers sore backs.
There must be a good reason, does anyone know?

They'll probably start with the construction of the basement slab?
You can see the insulating matting which will go underneath on the right side of the pictures.

Can't it be part of a crane? I've never seen such a color for a steel frame.

It looks to me like some sort of truss-belt.
