Works during July 2017

During July, we have continued constructing the basement slab. Drainage has been installed in the basement slab as the works progress. Works to the school’s ground floor slab have commenced with the excavation and trimming of the supporting piles.

Our first tower crane was erected over the weekend of 8/9thJuly. We have issued a separate apology for the overrun and late finish of this activity on the Sunday evening which occurred due to technical difficulties. We would like to repeat our sincere apologies for this.

At the time of writing our second tower crane is due for erection on the weekend 29/30th July. A separate notification was sent out on 21st July. This operation will be a lot simpler than the first tower crane, it will not require a mobile crane and will be carried out from within the site.

Community Engagement

In September McLaren will be attending a careers fair that will be held at the Nightingale Estate Community Centre. Further details will be made available in the August newsletter.

We support Hackney Council in hiring local labour and we are currently recruiting. If you live in or have been educated in Hackney and are looking for a job or an apprenticeship, visit waysintowork[at] 

Ways into Work is a free recruitment service run by the Council. Whether you’re just starting out, haven’t worked for years or you want to change careers, they can advise you.
