The newest care home in Yorkshire begins to take shape as the steel frame rises
Construction of Yorkshire’s newest care home has reached a new milestone, with the erection of the steel framework now under way at Scissett Mount.
Following the completion of the dig out phase last month, ground works have continued across the site, with the concrete pads now laid, allowing for the framework installation to begin.
The steel that will form the frame has now been delivered to the Busker Lane site, with the erection of the framework already in progress.
Currently scheduled to be complete within the next 6 weeks, the steel frame will be installed with combi safe edge protection, allowing for the floor plates to be poured – a process which is expected to be concluded within the next 9 weeks.
As work continues on the steel framework, the full scaffold wrap of the building will also be assembled and is expected to be fully installed before the end of the year.
The gabion baskets, which will form the retaining wall, are already on site and are awaiting installation before being poured.
Looking ahead, the gang nail roof truss design has now been fully approved and the roof for the building has been ordered. Work on the roof is expected to begin in January, following the installation of the steel frame, floor plates and scaffolding.
Currently, the construction of the superstructure is on course for completion at the end of January, while the whole development is expected to be fully watertight by the end of February.
