The second year of this four-year project will involve the construction of brick and ashlar stone walls at ground floor level, which will include vaulted brick and stone ceilings to some of the rooms. The first floor insitu concrete slab will be poured by Summer 2023, along with the commencement of works to rooms in the basement.
You will assist with the management of works on site and you’ll assist the design team and quantity surveyor with the co-ordination of their designs to enable efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the project.
