August 2015 – Upper floor room construction

August 2015

The inner skin of the lower floors is all concrete block work and is therefore great for fixing shelves that will carry heavy equipment.  The upper floor room dividing walls are a timber frame construction that has fire resistant plasterboard walls however, behind the plasterboard, are sheets of thick plywood to provide a sound fixing for shelves and equipment.  In each corner of the building we have access hatches to the external antenna brackets that have been fixed to the building’s steelwork.  This will enable ready access to the antennas that will be mounted to the four corners of the museum and to the antenna tower that will be erected adjacent to the building.
