Latest Building Update Video

You can now see the windows in the Controlling The Trains Building!

Another brick cutting session was held on in mid July, dealing with another 2000 for the English Bond, leaving some 600 for August. The next jobs on the building behind handled by the GWS CE Group with help from SPS will be the preparation work on the lintel steels (drilling and painting) and completion of the timber centrings for the window and door arches (nails and wood). These arches will be full thirteen-and-a-half inch thick in blue brick from Reading station and much effort has been put in over the last couple of months preparing all the sets of bricks.
