It is getting close to finalisation now – I anticipate another 3 weeks or so until Stage 3 is ready for use.
Work is progressing slowly due to the difficulty of getting tradespeople to the job, but the painters are now finally back on site which means the electrician can return for final fit-offs. The design of the door between the Sanctuary and the new Main Foyer will remain the outstanding item to complete due to the time lag in getting the fittings for the door and glass installations.
The joinery for the new Kitchen is installed as well as the roller shutter to the hatch/servery.
Carpet is down in the Soundy Lounge and Foyer areas, and the vinyl flooring to the remaining areas will be completed shortly. The ramp in the Church is virtually complete and awaiting painting.
Quotes have been obtained for altering the pews and this work will be carried out shortly after receiving the blessing of the Heritage Council.
Works to the Forecourt resumed mid-last week and the new concrete steps and Entry ramp has been poured. Paving is well advanced.
Preparations are underway for resurfacing the remainder of the rear carpark and the southern driveway.
We will commence getting the Mezzanine area organised this week.
The saga of the phone and internet connections continues! We have given Telstra the flick and are now dealing with a new provider.
Negotiations are also ongoing with the proposed Coffee Shop lessee.
