Just take one look at the standard of construction there.
Yeah Bock, my own (subjective) impression of the building site in the summer was a dodgy one.
The state of the footpath at the entrance of the building-site was littered with burst bags of plaster-gypsum was an absolute disgrace. Residents of the Watergate Flats had to walk through this slippy white muck.
The contractor involved seemed to save costs for not using a full scaffolding to finish the faÃ§ade of the building. Instead they moved a small scaffold along the faÃ§ade from section to section. I wonder, if such a practice is acceptable to the health and safety officer?
The use of timber frames to support the exterior walls of the six storey building faÃ§ade didnâ€™t inspire me (as a lay person) on the grounds of fire safety either? I may be wrong but would not concrete blocks or metal frames be a better option?
