Phase 1 of the Maritime Skills Academy is well under way. Since our last update in May, the site has been extremely busy. 25,000 tonnes of concrete has arrived and as you can see from the photographs below, the ground floor foundations and the first floor slab have been laid. The Academy is now starting to take shape and we will soon see the steelwork arriving to further bring the building out of the ground.
Viking are hoping to secure a visit from HRH Princess Royal as part of the grand opening. As you may know, Princess Royal has a close association with the maritime industry and is the Patron of charities such as Trinity House.
We hope you share our excitement in the evolution of the Maritime Skills Academy and look forward to providing further updates between now and expected completion in April 2016.
