The 'Accelerator to Target' (A2T) reinforcement is currently being installed on top of the filigree slabs - casting of the screed is planned before the end of the month and superstructure erection in this area will follow in October.
High bay steel installation continues on the Monolith high bay. When finished there will be 27 steel bars on each side.
The very last high bay casting for the Technical Gallery was completed on the northeast side last week, adding 212.5 m3 of concrete. In total almost 33,000 m3 has been cast in the entire Target area, with 2.500 m3 remaining.
On the west side of the Active Cell/Technical Gallery formwork for a suspended wall is nearing completion with casting next week. In the Active Cell, the high bay formwork is being removed as all casting has been completed and cured. The high bay steelworks will start in this area in mid-October.
In the D04 lab building, steel erection is being finalised, and later this month installation of precast hollow core slabs will start.
Civil Works: Excavation, piping and refill of the area just west of Laboratory 1a in Experimental Hall 1 is being completed, and almost 2,000 m2 of asphalt will be laid next week. Works continue with the completion of the areas outside the Experiment Hall Buildings, with levelling underway prior to asphalting. A mock-up for cladding of the sheet pile wall around the Circular Road is under evaluation. Concrete sheets are to be attached to the sheet piles with steel bolts and anchors, and a number of alternative attachment solutions are being considered.
In total, almost 150 concrete sheets will be attached to the sheet piling along the Circular Road - with an opening for the F04 Entrance Building (part of Campus project), resulting in approximately 400 metres of cladding. Each sheet is approx. 2.80 m wide and 3.30 m in height.
Campus Project: The Campus construction project is progressing well, with the superstructure erection for the B01 building underway. Superstructure erection has now also started for the B02 building workshop & labs.
