Weeks 13 to 16

Week 13 Ten wagons of concrete are pumped into the ring beam with a 41m reach pump.

Week 14 60m3 of concrete setting to a crushing strength of 35 Newtons that will be tested on day 28. Did you know that it was the Bedouins who first used concrete @6500BC: so a tried and tested building material.

Week 15 Reinforced metal frames to hold the concrete in the footings. Pile cropping continues across a lunar landscape.

Week 16 “mantled in grey, the dusk steals slowly in” Larkin’s Winter Nocturne as the concrete cures to its crushing strength.
