Hutchinson have completed all 28 diaphragm wall panels and the four large cranes have been demobilised and removed from the site.
Guide walls and the top of the diaphragm wall have been removed and bulk excavation started and will continue until approximately July 2019.
In March, the current hoarding along Clarence Avenue will be relocated to the street and pedestrians will be directed to walk along the road, which will be protected by the traffic barricades.
Pedestrian Access off Clarence Avenue
There is new timber hoarding in the port cochere which will create a larger walkway to enter into the Club via the ramp and the stairs. Extra lightening has been added to this area and a 1m wall will be created to provide a barrier from parked and moving cars.
The builders have completed 26 of 28 diaphragm wall panels – the walls of our future basement that extend 16m below ground level. Progress is still on schedule and bulk excavation of this area will commence shortly.
In late 2018, our fantastic builders hosted a very special site visit, read all about it here.
The builders are concentrating on the creation of the new Southern car park and progress is on schedule. Bulk excavation of this area is expected to commence in mid-late January.
FUN FACT: we can assure you that all restaurants and bars, existing and new, will be managed by the Club directly.
So far, our redevelopment has seen some remarkable figures:
• 60 tonnes of steel was erected in less than a week
• In one day, 90 cubic meters of concrete was poured
• 2,500 cubic meters of crushed concrete was delivered on site in less than two weeks
• 450m of hording has been used over two months
The builders will turn their attention to the creation of the new Southern car park for the next few months (the best place to view this is from the windows in The Bistro).
The porte-cochere works were completed on Monday 15 October.
Members and guests will now see the structure that was built over the last four weeks and the start of the new entrance.
The façade of the building has enhanced in size and function with the turning circle recently reopening as the very beginnings of our new porte-cochere, allowing sheltered entry and exit into our Northern car park.
From Monday 17 September for approximately four weeks, the porte cochere saw construction works that changed the entry and exit to the Club.
