UTILITIES: floor slab

    The floor slab needed to be continued across into the new half of the room. This was basically a repeat of the procedure for the original floor slab. We had to dig down and add hardcore and a layer of sand. We then joined the damp proof membrane with tape and fixed batons along the sides to give the level.

    dug November 2009: As with the main area of teh slab eveything needed digging out to allow for the various layers of the floor slab.

    150 mm hardcore November 2009: The 150 mm hardcore layer is in place and levelled. The remains of the old gas pipe was also chopped out at this stage.

    sand layer November 2009: The sand layer was installed to protect the damp proof membrane from the puncture.
