Ground Development Blog #6: Significant progress made

#GroundDevelopmentIt’s 64 days since the contractors from Derwent Valley Construction first arrived at The 3aaa County Ground and when they left the site on Monday evening for their Christmas break, they did so with some significant work already completed.

In the Gateway, the corridors on the lower ground floor have been built, plastered and painted, while the dressing rooms have advanced to the stage where the next fix will be plastering, lighting and carpets.

The Pavilion has undergone a comprehensive electrical re-wire, seen new drainage installed, along with new plumbing and air conditioning, while the extension roof trusses were added on Monday.

When the contractors return in January, the focus will be on the lift installation in the Pavilion, along with the fitting out of the first floor. Lighting, carpets, a newly-designed bar, television screens, drop-down projector screens plus a newly-created reception area on the ground floor will all be completed before the formal commissioning of services in March.

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen says he’s excited about the year ahead with strides being made both on and off the field at The 3aaa County Ground this winter.
