Great progress this last week, with contractors cutting openings in the concrete walls at Leumeah.  High risk construction work, so lots of planning, & proceeding carefully. See some pics below…

Saturday 10 September, 2016

The first official day of Construction consisted entirely of demolition, and for our team of 14, what we lacked in finesse we made up for in enthusiasm.

Vigorous application of crow-bars, sledge hammers & jack-hammers reduced the rather sad & tired old toilet block to rubble.

Ground-crew Team Leader Joshua presided over the flattening of the main wall (instantly named ‘Jericho’) and Hannah Jones (First Aid Officer & one-woman wrecking ball) never stopped – worth three blokes!

A great first day, clearing the way for marking out & concrete cutting. See pictures below and click for larger images.
