I do notice there never seems to be many people working in the photos.
Does anyone know how many people are involved in the construction ?

Could be they're moving that quickly the camera doesnt pick them up. If that's  the case I wonder if they can kick a ball?

I think we are getting within a month or so when we will see the steel framework starting, that will indicate real progress.
Please keep the photographs coming as they are a real tonic during Lockdown.

Talking about tonic, where is my Gordon´s bottle?

Even the underling work looks professional and of a high standard. When the steels start rising it will be difficult keep from not being excited

They still have to excavate the basement level apparently so not sure how that affects the steelwork going up, which should've been taking place soon

That last picture with all the grass in the foreground is rather a mystery. I assume it is the view from Bishops Park , then what are the white buildings behind the green fence that look like a row of houses, contactors huts ??

Contractors huts, office facilities, meeting rooms, coffee break..  stuff needed beside bending steel.
For sure exiting times.

If as the Club say, progress is still on track, then this month is set to be the most exciting so far as we get to see the huge steel frame starting to go up, will be a real poignant moment when we get to see the first picture showing this happening.

According to the clubs own schedule, the steel frame was going to start going up in April, the glazing was to start in May, and the concrete terracing to start in June,
So by that reckoning we must be at least two months behind schedule already, cant be because of the weather or football disruption can only be down to Covid-19

Most likely reason for the job running late is that the contractor is finding things more difficult than anticipated, and it really looks a complex build.
However , no doubt the reason for delay will be given as coronavirus.

A lot of the work schedule has been changed because there may not be a Summer football break in July, Should start to see steel going up in August. The Putney Stand media centre has got the dry lining boys in now and the basement is being dug and shipped away by barge.

It could also be because the supplies are not available, my son is a plasterer, he has a lot of work on hold because he cannot get the stuff, a bag of plaster costs around £8.00, currently selling on eBay for £45.00.
