Some drilling on site today. Glad to see the project going forward with the new team in place.

Is that likely to be exploratory drilling before a revised application?

Not sure. The new consultant team are proposing a different foundation solution, so without knowing their plans I would hazard a guess that they're after further geotechinical information to firm up their designs. Either that or it's possibly the piling contractor doing further exploratory drilling. Or maybe issues relating to gas ground deposits or other contaminates.

Regardless, I would doubt anyone would spend money on the site unless something is moving forward. Watkin Jones are still talking about doing the tower, as are the design team, so perhaps we'll be seeing some action pretty soon.

As an aside, I am glad it going to be fully designed by people in Cardiff now. I think it's great for the city that projects like this are done locally.

Also I did get a twitter notification regarding a project managers job at Watkins jones, Cardiff where it specifically mentioned working on the tallest building in wales etc. So if they recruiting for it they must be progressing.
