Progress images from the Phase 1 build
Can’t get to the Park to see how the development is progressing?
Then just check out the images below.
Our appointed contractors T.A.D. Builders Ltd are working hard on the construction of Phase 1 of the development., and we are pleased to report that we’ve had very positive feedback from Park users and those living close by on the way the work is being done. The construction programme is due to be completed by the end of 2022!
Schedule for May’22
Work on constructing the walls to Damp Proof Course level and on the drainage connections will be completed.
The block and beam floor will be constructed as the final element of the substructure works.
Construction of the walls above damp proof course level will get underway, and we may start to see scaffolding going up by the end of the month.
From 09 May, for up to 4 weeks, a channel of fencing will run across the park from the site to the hedge adjacent to Newton Road. This is to enable T.A.D. Builders to dig a trench for the mains services – gas, electric and water – which will supply the new buildings.
Work is well underway on the block and beam floor, with work due to be finished shortly.
And the channel for the new services to the facilities is well underway too!
Contractors finished pouring the concrete for the foundations, the blocks arrived on site, and the outline for the walls started to go up.
Work on the very important drainage connections has begun!
A large hole for the soak away drain was dug… and filled again in time for Mumbles Rangers’ teams big last matches of the football season.
Excavations are completed and a hardcore layer is added to create a construction piling mat.
In total, 57 piles are driven into the ground, to support the new buildings.
We are pleased to report that this was completed on schedule and with minimal impact for local residents and Park users.
With the piling completed, work on constructing the foundations gets underway.
With the site set up complete, the extremeties of the layout for the new buildings is marked out on the ground and contractors are ready to start digging.
MCA meet with representatitves of Mumbles Community Council to mark the start of the construction work.
A small portion of the Mumbles Rugby club changing rooms are demolished, to enable the development.
Excavations start to reduce ground levels.
With much excitement for everyone involved in Go Underhill, T.A.D. Builders arrive on 17 January, with some of the equipment needed to set up the site compound.
Safe access routes to the compound are established with a temporary hardcore roadway, fenced off from the playing areas.
