LF dome 1 - 14The project is going really well and the contractor SDC is doing a sterling job – Replacing and redesigning the leaking roof over the 100m diamter Dome whilst the public are using it is no easy task . It is all being done without a tower crane and uses techniques more akin to pyramid building than modern constructions.

Many sketch up models were produced to simulate both the design and construction sequencing enabling the business to plan ahead to minimise any guest impact.

SDC have been kind enough to organise bi monthly helicopter photo shots and these are truly spectacular – see two displayed here.

Project is scheduled for completion in early September 2015.
