At last an opportunity on Friday 11th March to get 3 things together
- perfect weather, a fire escape kit and lots of builders.
All hands on 'deck' needed
a bit of a squeeze between the scar and the building...
and up onto the scaffolding
time for a breather....phew!
chocking it up with 8"*3" bit by bit....note the blocks under the feet increasing too!!
pretty level in both directions
first leg goes on...
and it's starting to look the business
now time to get the steps lined up....
just bolting the steps and decking together before tea break...
fantastic team work from the Hilton Boys in Blue
& a very well-earned tea break in the sunshine with Friday bacon butties
...later, the railings are in place
and Steve gets the locks onto the fire escape door
meanwhile, back inside, Ted fits the fire doors
So, many thanks to the Hilton team today for their hard work and slog with the heavy ironwork.
