Walking through Chelsea last week and noticed the large brick faced steel framed stacks we had supplied last year were now in place on the roof. Tried to get in to get some better shots but apparently security has been extremely tight since it was alleged Mr Clapton was looking for a London base to strum on his guitar. The brick corbel detail worked well and great that these could be supported directly off the roof without having a chimney breast running right through the centre of the block losing valuable floor space.
Christmas shut down has been very productive at Fab-Lite this year.
We have taken the opportunity to knock down the old original cutting shed and replace it with a new modern lighter, bigger, warmer facility.
Our site has a long history of wool and textile production from the early 20th century but the last 40 years of brick cutting in the unit had definitely taken its toll on the old building.
New facility is up and running this week and great to see production recommence following the hard work put in by all to ensure the minimum about of disruption to the key element of a brick fabrication Company.
If it lasts as long and produces as many cut bricks as the old unit, we will be very happy!
