Building the Wing Walls

The ambulatory extension walls, or ‘wing walls’, will continue the ambulatories from the Chancel into the new Bishop Selwyn Chapel. The taller of these concrete walls will be over 8 m high to match the current parapet level of the existing ambulatories. The lower third of each wall has been cast in situ. The upper two thirds have been manufactured off-site in a factory as pre-cast slabs.  The photo below shows one of the slabs undergoing a finishing sand-blast treatment.
