The office became a model making workshop this month, with various projects being explored in 3D. A concept model for a potential new project got us experimenting with plaster of paris and copper:

With a bit of help from a few friends including Simon Windley Specialist Woodworks to make the base, we were really pleased with the outcome and hope to be developing the concept further soon.

On site at the Olde English the steelwork is complete, floor decks laid and concrete pour has commenced. With the site being only a short walk away from the office, we've been keeping a close eye on progress!

At South Field house in Fritchley, the lower ground floor has been dug out of the hillside, with steelwork reinforcement underway, the concrete foundation should be poured later this week.

At a slightly earlier stage, we have just completed our set of tender information for the new classroom block for Littleover Community School. The project will be going out to tender soon and hopefully starting on site later this year. This drawing shows the plan section detailing for the two storey concrete arches to the curved front elevation.
