Last Friday evening was the Guilds 65th Annual dinner with a fantastic after dinner speech by Andrew Chaplin and the awarding of the Guilds medals to Emma Waitzmann, Sam Mayhew and Ryan Wales a fantastic evening was had by all
This evening marked another great year of the York Guild of Building’s Craftsmanship awards with winners form a variety of skilled trades including stained glass, Joinery and Decorating to name a few.
A huge congratulations to all the winners.
This afternoon we had a second visit to the York Community stadium site this time focusing on the new 13 screen Imax Cineworld cinema, It was fascinating learning about the project and seeing the progress in the last few months from a shell to almost complete cinemas.
The chalanges relating to scaffolding were particularly interesting with it taking almost a week to erect and dismantle the scaffold in each screen and the total weight of scaffold in the building being around 200 tonnes.
We thank Stephanie from Simpsons for arranging reaching out and offering this tour to us along with Jim and Andrew who showed us around.
If you have a project you think we may be interested in please get in touch.
This page will be regularly updated by members of the guild.
