Frank Hall & Son have returned and are in full swing. In just over a week they have put the structural supports in for the new floor in the engine room. The floor should almost be complete this week ready for the structural work under the old toilet and showers.
The glazing is now complete following the tower’s refurbishment earlier this year.
Standing in the new space feels amazing, providing stunning views and shelter from the elements.
We’re starting to get a sense of what it will be like once the new helical staircase is complete and we’re more excited about it than ever!
To ensure we are always warm and toasty in the winter, and nice and cool in the summer – this new space has been insulated with 100mm of foam ready for lining out.
After tweaking the drawings and measuring everything ten times, the level has been set for the new floor in the engine room. This will enable us to quickly get in all the floor beams next week that will eventually support four new en-suite cabins and the new toilet and shower area.
With phase 3 going ahead some holes have been drilled through all the decks as a final check to ensure the staircase was located correctly… and it was! Phew!
With a new coat of paint on the lookout and newly formed upper saloon, the drawings and plans have taken form. Trinity’s looking great and if you look closely you can see the new almost complete glazing on the light tower too!
