Shaun, Dan and Keith insulating the roof.

Shaun and his team have been working hard at W. Smith’s installing the windows, the timber floor of the attic, the upstairs stud walls and all of the loft insulation.

Our contractors have also been busy slating the roof and the concrete screed floor has been poured on the first floor.

All this work will allow us to get the building weather tight and the internal surfaces ready for fitting out the downstairs shop and the upstairs stores and offices.

Work is continuing on the first floor of W. Smith’s, including the construction of the curved gable end from reclaimed Georgian brick. The formers for the windows are also in place and the walls of the storey are going up fast.
