Today the bi-fold doors are being fitted in the upper saloon, meaning that the room will be watertight and we can continue finishing the fitting out of the room.
The space is progressing every day and we’re so excited that our guests can benefit from it in 2019 – isn’t the view amazing?!
The flooring is going down at a pace and the space is being transformed!
We’re imaging the new toilets and showers in this space, and we’re getting more and more excited about this phase of the project. The circular lower section represents the base of the new helical staircase.
The new space will offer us so much more and we can’t wait to bless our groups with it!
With the works onboard going at full throttle, it’s important to remain organised with each aspect of the phase. It’s great to welcome back some of the contractors who are doing the later stages of work this winter. Weekly meetings with out contractors are ensuring that the plan runs smoothly!
After the fitting of the new floor support beams, Frank Hall & Sons have quickly moved on to fitting the floor panels, ready for the heating, plumbing and ventilation to be installed underneath.
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.
This week our lining out contractor, Stroods, have arrived to completed the lining out of the upper saloon. Things are quickly progressing as you can see – both men cutting simultaneously. Two weeks have been booked to complete the work.
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!
