At last, after more than a year of delays, Council has given us its blessing to go ahead with phase one of the dust extraction system. Council engaged outside contractors to excavate the site, prepare the foundation for the concrete pad, and pour the concrete.

  

The completed pad will need about three weeks to cure after which the dust extraction plant will be relocated from storage inside the building, and will erected by the manufacturer, EzyCut, on the pad outside.  EzyCut will also install the main trunk of ducting through the wall and along the southern perimeter of the building. Once that work has been completed we will erect a fence around the plant for security.
