Ready for the first pour

By ‘pour’ we mean concrete, but this is August in Scotland - the good weather won’t last for long! With the high grade damp proof membranes being laid and the rebar positioned for the slab and retaining walls, the lower ground floor slab is almost ready to be poured. On the ground floor, the underbuilding blockwork walls have been built up and hardcore is currently being spread ready for the sand blinding and DPM to be installed before the slab is poured in the next week or two.
