agreed it's not pretty is it, there's no buildings there that you'd really want...Iv'e always liked the Dallas-esque look of the dark mirrored Brum Hyatt Hotel in the foreground though. There was nothing else like it built in the other provincial cities in the 1980's. London of course and even Basingstoke had similar clad blocks long before anywhere else.

HH2018 could you update us as to what is happening onsite? I walked past the site yesterday and today and there was no one onsite, no work taking place. The piling rig and two diggers are still onsite.

Will also await an update, but I checked the conditions on this last week and the condition on the crane still hasn't been discharged.

Be nice to hear some news as I am sure some people will be getting skeptical. I know I am...

Perhaps clearance is complete, or piling is complete? I seem to remember this on another site some time ago where there was a pause on site after one early stage of construction was completed while sub-contractors were changed over. Might be clutching at straws here but hopefully there's some sort of legitimate reason?

Like i mentioned above, they havenít had a condition on the cranes discharged. So they canít put a crane up until it has been dealt with, and like you mention they may have completed piling already. Until we see a front page news article saying ĎHume House Cancelledí iím gonna wait patiently.

Aye. I wouldn’t worry too much about a stall of a couple of days. They’ve seemed fairly focussed so far, but there’s gonna be hiccoughs at some point. With our history of disappointments it’s understandably nervy to see a pause at this stage though.

I’d give it a few days before actually worrying.

Just looking at the conditions being discharged, still awaiting approval - one is condition 4 which is certification of complete removal of asbestos, the condition states certification shall be approved prior to commencement of the development. This is in addition to condition 8 which requires the statement of construction practice (including access, cranes, dust & debris, traffic management, etc) to be approved prior to construction or even demolition work, along with condition 10 which requires a highways condition survey before demolition or construction.

Didn't the two next door have a bit of a delay due to asbestos too?

Yes, good point, they halted demolition for quite a while at WRV with some of the structure still remaining while the removal teams went back in. It all got moving after that, so hopefully all should be well here in due course too.

I don't think RG Group has anything to do with Interserve, could it be the relentless bad weather in recent days? although I doubt it.
I expect things will get going again soon though.

It may well be that the contractor is waiting for conditions to be discharged before the progress work. The last conditions (related to drainage, asbestos, ground investigations) were validated on 26/2/19 are still waiting to be discharged, as are further conditions validated on 24/1/19.

If the contractor is genuinely waiting for the council it suggests either the council is taking too long or the contractor didn't submit them in good time. Either way it doesn't seem very efficient to have a site idle.

As this will be a major application they have 12 week determination timescales. The January ones will have until 24th of April and the Feb ones 26th of May, officially.

This all depends on the submitted information being correct, not needing amendments, etc. Conditions are a multi-layered and complex beast, a lot of them relying on a previous condition being discharged or works on the ground first - prime example being the asbestos one.

Itís more efficient to get initial groundworks out of the way and deal with each condition as it comes than waiting until every single detail is resolved before moving onto site- itís not as if they have contractors idling around on site, in fact given that RG Group are doing Symons and WRW they probably just moved back onto those sites; one of the efficiencies gained from being involved in three projects all down the road from each other.

Thanks for your insight. I don't know how the process usually works, but this helps alot.
