PINEWOOD SET FOR LATE NIGHT ACTION
Pinewood’s improvement works to take place at night and at weekends, neighbours are warned
BUILDING work is set to take place over night and at weekends as construction on the expansion of Pinewood Studios continues.
People living near to the famous film making site in Iver Heath have been sent letters by the studios informing of the work, which is set to take place between now and March.
Work will include the laying of concrete slabs, as well as other building work, which will be continuing during the day and into the night up until 2am.
There will also be works being carried out to the building facades at the site using cranes and light machinery between the hours of 8am and 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
A letter addressed to residents from Kerry Mills, Pinewood’s project community liaison manager, said: “As you are aware, a series of improvement works are currently taking place as part of the development of the Pinewood Studios Development Framework.
“Over the course of the next couple of months we will be laying concrete slabs to both internal and external studio floors within the Pinewood Studios development.
“We are carrying out concrete pours during the hours of 7.30am to 7.30pm, with finishing works to be carried out thereafter, using light plant machinery up to 2am.
“Please note that works may be finished before these times due to weather conditions.
“We will be continuing to work hard towards mitigating the impact of the works on the local community and local businesses, and appreciate your understanding during the works taking place.”
Building work on the expansion of Pinewood Studios has been taking place since last year, and the studios is hopeful that once complete it will allow an increased amount of productions to be filmed there.
The studios has already been earmarked as the location of shooting of the next two episodes in the Star Wars franchise, following the success of the site in filming Star Wars Episode VII.
