Sunny Friday and nearly April! Thankfully the weather gods have been kind to us this past week or two and the weather forecasters at Aunty (the BBC for those young ones amongst us) are saying the weather is due to change, but don’t know when! Is it me or is that a bit like saying we think you will have a birthday this year . . . at some point?
Anyway what a week, sewage treatment plant works just titivating, concreting slab laid tidy up and titivate and lake filling plus titivating to make the area look nice, Oh and not to forget a quick pond liner installed . . .as you do in a day . . .this basically sums up this week.
The sewage treatment plant and pipework near Derby is all finished. Today is a tidy up day, making sure the client is happy, running through things and handing it over.
We finished the concrete slabs near Kidderminster, leaving them to thoroughly go off before we go back to fully tidy up, sweep off, remove the shuttering and leave ready for use. All being well the client will ask us to look at the rest of the yard once they see the benefits of these slabs.
The lake refurbishment near Chipping Norton is finished, just the last bits of titivating and letting it fill. It is spring fed and so far has taken over 10 days. I have said this many times before though it is looking really good. The client has asked us to look at some further works, pathways, tracks and a new road. It looks as though we could be there a few more weeks yet, which we don’t mind as it is on our door step, definitely another one of those “oh whilst you are here” jobs.
A previous client called us in as he had a problem with his pond. We suggested adding a liner, within seconds of receiving his price it was booked in, organised and in!! Had the go ahead on Tuesday, wanted it done quick so managed to organise men, materials and machines for Thursday morning and off site Thursday night.
The sun is in for the weekend so enjoy before Aunty changes her mind. Been a cracking week lads, thanks as always for your graft and hard work. Have a cracking weekend and we will see you Monday.
