Construction has proceeded very well and the installation of log frame has advanced according to plan, without problems. The timetable that the customer has set is quite busy and challenging but on the other hand we have accepted the challenge and the assembling foreman is very trustful that we will finish this project in time. Ikihirsi has submitted all the materials to the site.
Last time visiting the building site, I had with me Gary, a project manager of English building company. He was there to get more information and experience of a big building project of building a log house, since our project will be one the biggest log house buildings in a whole Europe.
He was especially keen to know, how the logistics of the project has worked out. This project is so big that it is not rational to bring all the materials to the site at the same time. The deliveries have been divided so that the materials have become to the site just when they are needed.
Our guest wanted to know, if they arrived in time? The assembling supervisor said that everything has become right in time. Of course, this didn’t just happen by itself but from the very beginning we made an exact project plan and everybody committed to abide by it. To make the timetable work wasn’t only the responsibility of Ikihirsi, but also of many third parties and of course of the customer.
There have been few surprises: A lightning hit the crane of the site last week. Therefore the crane is out of order and is waiting for the repairman to come. In the meantime, the assembling group has focused on other finishing works. It is not possible to continue the assembling of the log frame without the crane in the project this big. In the first part of the complex is in the same time going on the assembling of the windows and the midsole. To the main building the group is assembling the insulation of the base floor, on top of that there will come a technical floor.
We will follow the progressing of the project in our blog.
