Church Roofing Repairs and PreSchool Upgrades
Stephen Turner last edited by Stephen
The first site meeting with Skope Constructions was held 27/6/22 to discuss the commencement of the project and a draft program for the work. It was opportune to have this meeting, because the Preschool will close for a two-week period starting 4th July. During this period shutdown, the roof over the Preschool will be the first area to be refurbished with Colorbond roofing. This will minimise the effect of the work on the operation of the Preschool.
Like all programs this a draft and is subject to weather and change for many reasons. Safety inductions are carried out by the Builder for his staff and contractors. If someone needs access to a work area then the Builder will need to give that person a Safety Induction, to be arranged through our Project Manager, Derek Lee.
Hopefully, there will be little interference with Church programmed activities until we need to close the Hall to replace the windows or accommodate Preschool activities that may need to be held in there from time to time when that area is closed. As much notice will be given as possible and we thank you for your cooperation during this period.
The following time table was discussed to commence the work.
Access to site -- during working hours 7:00am to 5:00pm -- from 4th July until completion of work. Builders will have their own construction toilet in a fenced off area of the pre school.
1/ Roof over the Preschool – The western end, up to the gable, will be replaced starting 7th July and completed by 14th July, depending on weather.
2/ Stage 1 of Preschool work – 1st August to 30th September – Staff rooms etc – Minimum disruption to the Preschool operation. Preschool staff will liaise with the Project Manager at all times.
3/ Stage 2 of Preschool work – 1st October to 29th October – Handicapped Toilet and New Entry pathway.
4/ Roof over the Church – No date at this time, but likely in late July starting from the Church (eastern) end and working towards the Preschool.
5/ Repair to the water damaged areas of the Church – This area will be cordoned off while work is in progress – no date at present.
Colour of the Roof – Several people were asked and provided input. Thank you for your suggestions and choice of DUNE colour. This is the colour of the Church Front Door and Windows.
Undated information will be circulated as and when available.
