Construction Update

Significant progress has been made at The Georgette North B1 and The Georgette North B3 since the last construction update, reports Mount Anvil.

The reinforced concrete frame was completed in both of the North Tower blocks, which then allowed for the façade and windows to begin to be installed.

Floor screeding application and underfloor heating installation has commenced. Once this is complete internal walls can be added. Exciting times ahead as the building takes shape to become your new home.

The Georgette South B4 will be launching soon, with estimated completion in Q3 2021.
