Interior & exterior masonry

Published by Web Master on

Back in the first week of October, the last concrete slab of the ceiling was poured successfully. As soon as the ceiling is fully dried out, the wooden props and formwork are removed before burning off the adhered plastic film – used for a smooth finish during concrete pouring. Next step? Masonry of the exterior & interior walls!

The entire exterior is foreseen in cut-out stones, only the rear facade – parallel to the embankment – will be built with well-formed & baked bricks. As soon as the concrete dried out (28 days), the masonry of the interior walls could begin. These walls are later be smoothed with three successive layers totaling a thickness of 35 mm, requiring a bit of precision work.

In early December, the exterior masonry with the beautifully tinted rock blocks was erected. Meanwhile, the concrete roof was sloped to ensure proper rainwater drainage. A gutter at the rear facade collects rainwater. This metal gutter is temporary, pending the construction of the conference room on the first floor.

While the entire concrete supporting structure is expertly smoothed with mortar, the rock block walls are also jointed. A lot of progress to report on, enjoy the pictures!
