The population of Fruit Towers has been growing quietly but steadily for a while now. So it was time to get in some more desks and a few extra beanbags. And after months of anticipation, the red ribbon was cut on Monday, opening a whole new wing ('wing' might be pushing it a bit) on the southern end of the building. We even had some yoghurt treats to celebrate. That's how wild things get around here.
To celebrate the opening of the new South Wing, we asked Jenny a few questions. She was the project manager of the whole building thing and is the person who basically keeps the office running like a well-oiled machine.
How long has it taken to do up unit 6 (aka the South Wing)?
We moved in there on 11th August so it has taken just over 3 months to do.
How many new desks does it have?
30 new desks
How many metres of astroturf did it take?
204sq/m to be precise...and lots of daisies
Who supplied the nice yoghurt stuff?
Momafoods. Tom and Amy set up Moma on February 24th of this year.
Any weird and wonderful facts about Ian the builder?
No, he is just brilliant. Although his wife did get really angry with him when he was working late here one day and missed his delicious dinner of lamb shanks.
Lou and Viv used to have nothing but some white bricks to gaze at during low points in the afternoon. Now they have a beautiful view. Lucky things.
