The electrical first fix is complete - i.e all the wiring for lighting, power, fire alarm, burglar alarm, internet, telephone and video signals. The mechanical first fix is also complete i.e. all the pipework for central heating, water and drainage. Both sets of stairs are in place. Plastering has been completed on the first floor and is well underway on the ground floor. The new main entrance has been knocked through and new arched windows are in place. The flat roof has been put on the kitchen and rear storerooms so the building is now watertight. Completion is scheduled for mid June.

The door into the church - the opening has been widened in preparation for phase 2 as this will become the main audience entrance. However it has been temporarily narrowed to avoid the glass vestibule wall inside the church.
