We’re in the trenches on rocky foundations!
It was with great excitement and relief that construction returned on the 16th of January👷🏻♂️👷🏻♀️. The concrete slabs have been cut to provide drainage for the clinic room sinks but as with building, not all things are simple. The foundation supporting the slab seems to have eroded away, leaving the builders, engineers and the hydraulics teams scratching their heads to find a solution.
The challenge took time, but the team has since formulated a solution and rectification has started. Fingers crossed this is the last of the surprises 🤞🏻
To help make space for the group exercise room and staff room a large brick wall was demolished. Hard to picture now, I know but this facility will look amazing once finished.
Gateway Life design
Below is the design of the facility. As you can see there is a large gym space, 10 clinical rooms, meeting room, group exercise classroom and a cafe.
On my next update I will provide more details on the vision and pillars we will base our strategic focus on.
