First steel Ovata
The foundation works have been completed and the drainage tubes are safely hidden under a layer of soil. Now it's time to start working on a higher level. The first steel has been erected for the expansion of Ovata in Bleiswijk. There has been quite some rain in the last couple of days, which doesn't make things easier. This project has an extra challenge. Every row has a slightly different column and trellie. There have been quite some headaches with connecting the new greenhouse to the old one properly. Usually more than 90% of the columns and trellies are identical. That is not the case here.
The video shows that all the trellies and columns have already been sorted. The concrete piles have been given a number, corresponding to the column that needs to go there. This makes sure that construction will run smoothly, despite the large number of different columns and trellies. Glazing will start in about three weeks from now.
The gutters of the old greenhouse have already been prepared, in order to attach the new gutters.
All materials have been sorted properly to accommodate a smooth construction
