During piling our main risk is that vibration from the piling will cause concern to the gas company. We have installed vibration monitoring (itself a delay and extensive cost) and the builders have considered how to manage this so we should be OK. Once that is done, actual building can commence.
We are running a few weeks behind schedule - the asbestos delays meant that the piling company could only come in the new year not before Christmas - but should be complete in late summer 2014.
