Open all hours

"We're working some pretty dark hours, but the results are worth it." says Lee Eastmead, foreman on the latest large commercial project for Harding Construction.

5am starts have been the norm for the Harding Construction team. "By pouring concrete so early in the morning we gain as much drying time as possible throughout the day," explains Simon Harding, Managing Director for the company.  Cold winter temperatures can mean concrete takes up to 24 hours to dry, so we have to maximise the time available."

Concrete and assorted general works will continue for several weeks before the next main stage of the project will begin. "Things are going really well," says Harding, "We're all enjoying being part of a large and interesting development."
