The back filling of the site started today. As much of the excavated earth that could be stored on the construction site has now been used up. Time for the dumpster trucks to arrive with more earth to infill behind the west wall.

The ‘behind the scenes’ project management of the past 5 months will now pay dividends with visible rapid progress. The geometre has finished, the earth studies are complete, drainage has been agreed and the electrical supply is in place.
The trees will now be cut back in preparation for the earthwork excavation to begin. We are on schedule to complete the foundations by the end of November at which point the site will be back filled with earth. We will then close the site ready to return in the spring.
The approach of having the foundations in place this year allows the project to hit the ground running as soon as the ski season finishes at the end of April..
