Activities on site

Bolt pads have been stripped and bolts have been loosened and are free within the cones. Pads have been put back over the bolts to keep the pockets clean and free of debris.

Plinth for the base of the pre cast stair has been cast. Dowels have been cast in to the pad for continuity with the slab pour when it happens.

The 1st lift of blockwork forming the stair enclosure has been built. The remaining blockwork will be built after the GF slabs have been cast.

Joiners have now formed and installed internal shutters on top of the bolt pads to allow the floor slabs to be cast up to the bolt pads.

Drain pop ups and service ducts have been installed and preparation for GF slab pours. Drains have been tested and witnessed by R Tewnion.

DPM and insulation being laid in preparation for GF Slab pour.

The dpm at bolt pad extensions should be lapped up the side of the concrete extensions and sealed around the concrete to ensure the damp proofing is continuous around the pads.

Insulation should have a minimum 500 gauge polythene or visqueen isolation layer laid between the concrete and the foil face of the insulation as per the manufacturer’s instructions (extract below and full Datasheet appended). This is to protect the foil surface from reacting with the alkaline concrete.

Station RdA very big thank you to SSE from Strathdearn for the great job they did repairing Station Road. Over the course of two days last week, the SSE crew upgraded the untarred track around the old railway station and down the side of the distillery. They filled in the potholes and ruts and when necessary, they paused work and moved their machinery to the side to allow access to locals. The job was completed in a professional and courteous manner without closing the road.

Strathdearn Development Company (SCD) supplied the materials and SSE provided men and equipment for free.

The job was organised by Jimmy Duncan as part of SCD's quick gains programme and Neil MacDonald handled it on behalf of SSE. Thanks to you both and all the SSE crew for the work and time involved in making this happen.

Station Road forms part of the Tomatin path network, connecting the bus stop on the A9 north to the village centre. It is now a much easier walking route, particularly for those with pushchairs.
