above ground ringbeam . Underground Drainage and shuttering.

IMG_20200424_173631.thumb.jpg.815799b43ad85549b211f7d6965c656b.jpgSo finally managed to update the blog. Seems like nothing happened , but a bit of progress still.

 

Now just have to get this monstrosity past Building Control . Challenging task but I will manage. As always. I can tell I will not become a Groundworker in this life . Or the next.

To my understanding it doesn't matter at all . The ringbeam just connects the piles , so effectively is the pile cap. Load sits on the piles.

Jeepers! makes our build seem like a cake walk. Good to see you making so much progress. Getting all that concrete onto site is going to be a challenge. Looks like the rebar caging is in good shape.

All Pat and I can say is "hats off" well done.
