1st November update

Nov 1, 2017 | The Build

It’s been around five weeks since the last update of the Cornerstone Centre refurbishment and now that Kerrigan has left Chris, the photographer, is taking over writing duties (for now). I work on a voluntary basis with the church but recently I’ve been immensely busy with work so the timelapse of the church has had to be put on hold but with just a few weeks to go I’m planning on popping over more regularly again and seeing the project to it’s finish.

The last time I visited the One World Shop was just being fitted and it’s now complete. I’ve written about this below and also took a few photos today.

Elsewhere with the build, the scaffolding that led to the roof has been taken away. There are I believe 11 joiners working on site to get all the fittings in. I saw an electrician doing something with the wiring and in the upper part of the new mezzanine in the main hall the builders were busy putting things together.

In the first photo of the build you can see a girder towards the upper right of the photo which has been in preparation for the stairs. I spoke to the site manager and he said installing the stairs is going to be one of the biggest jobs of the build but it will be exciting to see how it looks. The painters are also coming in soon so everything will be cleaned, painted and then they’re good to go.

One World Shop

I last visited the church five weeks ago and the One World Shop was just being fitted. Today the shop is completely fitted and up and running. It looks fantastic, such a big improvement over their previous space.

Rest of the build

Again it’s been five weeks since photos were last taken of the build at the Cornerstone Centre and wow the build has really come along. Girders have been fitted for the staircase, the spaces in the main hall are being divided and it’s looking almost there. I believe the builders will be handing the keys over on or around the 15th December so it will be interesting to see how things develop between now and then.
