The construction of the footbridge that will link Kingfisher House to Manchester Road has now commenced on-site in Huddersfield.
The bridge support steel and decking has been completed and the roof and walls for the entrance have now been constructed, with the installation of the cladding coverage currently under way.
Installation of the exterior windows and the cladding is now generally complete, with the cladding for the staircase glazed pods also installed.
Additionally, work on the access road for the development has continued, with the Manchester Road entrance now being widened and the installation of the interlocking concrete blocks that will form the foundation for a supporting wall for the ramp.
In the interior of the building, levels 6 and 7 are virtually complete with the exception of the furniture fit out, with power and water available to both the kitchen and bathroom areas.
The finishing trades have now moved to all floors throughout the rest of the building in order to complete the interior work before the furniture can be added to each apartment.
Floor 0, having previously been used for the storage of contractor supplies, is currently being plastered in preparation for the finishing trades to commence work on this floor as well.
The second fix of the Mechanical and Electrical works are proceeding in conjunction with the plasterwork as this continues through the building.
The major plant room equipment has been installed as well as a water tank which has been tested and is providing water to all floors. Electric power is also available on most floors within the building, with power set to be switched on for each floor as work is completed.
The plant room will be fully completed shortly and will be ready for full commission in January.
Following high demand from property investors, Kingfisher House has now fully sold out, but the second phase of the project - Cormorant House - is now available. For more information about Cormorant House, please take a look here.
