We begin repairs- 7 months late…

5 October

Finally after 7 months we have managed to start on repairs.  Today we had to demolish our neighbours shop frontage and part of his ceiling to get to the joint party-wall.  We also demolished about 50cm of brick party-wall in preparation for that enormous steel beam pictured below.  I am now awaiting the Engineer (again) to do some detail of the new foundation base needed for this beam.

AND we have a protection shield built over the area, so that my steel company lads do not get crowned by rogue bricks!  OMG  good eh!

Why did we have to wait 7 months?  Only CERA can answer that question. My view is perhaps rather cynical and runs along the lines of incompetence,  total lack of business experience, expertise, paranoid fear of risk, health and safety paper work.  Have I missed anything?
