London Central Build Blog – Week 32

Massive progress has been made over the past few days, with major leaps forward in the cooling system installation which means that technical systems are ready for installation imminently. Great progress has been made in a number of areas throughout the facility, which is always good for seeing the project come together more quickly as we reach the final furlong.
