Leaning lift shaft

One off the lift shafts at KGS after last weekends blow. Not sure what kind of foundations they are on but they straightened them up again on Wednesday evening ! 5/12/11

[I also took a picture of this from the road and asked Alan Moar (OIC project manager for the new schools programme) about it. He replied "Yes we noted this yesterday also. Suspect the levelling shims have moved prior to grouting with the weather causing vibration over the weekend, so it will need to be reset. The foundations are on rock so they won’t go anywhere but doesn’t look good I agree!" - Steven]
