Some good news. Nothing scary has happened in regard to the construction of Mareel in the past month. The new venue is packed full of builders rapidly moving Mareel towards completion. Our Contractor DITT Construction Ltd is on schedule for the end of May handover of the building and we are all working hard together to mitigate any further delays and help DITT complete to the new timescale. The building inside is coming together at an astonishing pace.

The venue is literally hotting up… with all radiators now pumping heat into the building and the commissioning phase of electrical and mechanical installations now underway. The quality of the carpentry and finish of the various rooms is excellent. In particular the wooden balustrades around the balconies of the music hall looks great. Both Cinema 1 and Cinema 2 are nearing completion with just carpets and seating being the major work left in these areas.

Below are some of latest images taken yesterday… more will follow in a few weeks after the under floor heating is installed in the foyer areas.
