The Sorting Office
With the difficult ground works and drainage out of the way and the majority of works now concentrated on the interior, it feels like progress is now moving quickly at The Sorting Office. It was always a complicated renovation, being set over multiple levels and on a slope, which made it initially difficult to navigate, however with the interior taking shape, the individual apartments and their layouts are now much clearer.
Works are furthest along in the original Grade Two listed Sorting Office where most of the apartments are plastered, and second fix joinery, electrics and plumbing are taking place. This means that kitchens and bathrooms are being fitted, doors hung, electrics installed, and appliances plumbed in. The show apartment is also completed and ready for viewings.
At the rear of the building, the ground floor apartments are the last to have been boarded following tanking of the basement and concreting. The exterior of this section of The Sorting Office which overlooks the car park is being rendered, giving a glimpse of what the finished, polished development will look like.
Now the layout of the development is clear, and the show apartment completed, it is a great time for potential investors to book a site visit and still benefit from off plan pricing, click here to book a viewing.
All works at Station Terrace are concentrated on the exterior; completing the exterior works is a priority to ensure that the building is watertight and interior works can begin. At the front of the building, extensive scaffolding has been erected to provide access to the roofing team who are around mid-way through replacing the roof.
The rear of Station Terrace has been completely removed, exposing the shell of the interior. These dramatic works are in preparation for the new extension which should be built quickly now that the ground works and pilings are in place and the supporting steel work is almost complete. Once this steel work has been fully installed and signed off by a structural engineer, the bricklayers will arrive on site to build the footings and walls.
Site Manager Mick Cooper predicts that once the exterior and structural works are completed, the interior remodelling should be completed quickly and follow the format of our other recently completed renovations.
