The classrooms had all been plastered, and the steelwork was in place. This week the team are in the process of fitting the roof timber in preparation for the roof to be completed next week. The flooring has also been screeded, which means a thin layer of concrete poured over the base flooring to provide a smooth level and strong foundation for the top player of flooring.

We are also progressing at Afton Street in Barrow in Furness, last week, a lean-to roof was installed, and new drainage was in place to accommodate the new toilet and sink. Next week the plumbing will be installed, and the plastering will be completed. The outside steps leading to the new extension will also be put in place.
