Text: Building Site
Constructing the new shopping centre
In our neighbourhood they are building a shopping centre and from our window you can see the crane towering above the rest of the buildings. Like any building site, this one is also very noisy. You can often hear the banging of the digger and how the dump trucks are constantly unloading new materials.
There are lots of specialised workers on the building site. The bricklayers, for example, make cement in the cement mixer to construct the brick walls with the help of trowels. Then the plumbers will deal with the installation of pipes for the plumbing.
Wearing a helmet and special clothing is obligatory for the labourers. In addition, the site is surrounded by a fence and they are fewer and fewer workers behind it.
At least the building site is nearly finished after six months. With all the noise I haven’t been able to study in peace in the library because it’s next to the new shopping centre.
