Huber Car Park Systems (HCPS) have progressed well with the installation of reinforcement cages for the construction pile caps, with 60% complete and four of fourteen lightening protection connections made to date.
As the project progresses new measures have been put in place, starting with the diversion of the back entrance to Waitrose to enable the safe use of mobile cranes and work platforms. The new pedestrian access routes are shown (in yellow) on the plan below.
This week marks the start of structural formation with the installation of precast stair cores using a 110-ton crane. As with any precast elements lifted close to access roads, there will be the need for intermittent closures, usually lasting for no longer than five minutes at a time.
To minimise the impact upon the local community HCPS has ensured that deliveries are made at low traffic periods and on less busy routes.
Huber’s onsite team are happy to be approached by residents to answer any queries or questions during the ongoing development.
Thanks to Berkhamsted Citizens for providing this update, more on which you can read in our Autumn issue, which will be distributed week commencing 2 September.
