The skeleton of the building is really starting to take shape on site as the first of the steel beams are put in place. They will hold the roof of the main foyer and the linking section towards the Sackville Street office space.
As part of this work, the first holes are being cut through the west end wall of the church where we will soon have a brand new entrance door.
It’s this point in the project that it begins, in a small way, to look like a building. The steel skeleton gives you a good idea of the space that is to come. Huge praise to the trades on site who are working in some pretty cold and wet conditions to get this job done for us.
