Charmouth bridge on site

Construction work on the new Charmouth footbridge we designed with engineers from Dorset County Council has begun. Below are images of the first elements - piles are in place, and work on the abutments is underway. The steel frame should be delivered to site in the next couple of weeks and if all goes to plan it should be open for the easter holidays.
The old bridge (the one which needs replacing) is still in place and usable so you can get a good look at how things are progressing with the new one.

Wild life on tour

After its first four nights at Cumbernauld Theatre, Wild Life has now begun its tour around Scotland, Mull Theatre tonight at the Tron in Glasgow this weekend amongst other dates.
Actors Lesley Hart and David Ireland do an outstanding job, it's worth seeing just to watch them at work.

Reviews have been good so far.

Here are a few pictures from the final dress rehearsal (thanks to Jonny Rogerson (Assistant Director) for the images:
