What’s going on?
The main contractor, BAM, completed their preliminary site set-up last weekend. The external boundary has been secured with temporary fencing until the permanent hoardings are installed. Interior hoardings have also been erected on the ground floor to isolate the south wing of the Library (the former Education Centre).
The permanent hoardings internally and externally will carry information about the project – this will be coming soon.
Service isolation and strip-out of the south wing is now underway.
Demolition work in the south wing will commence on 19 September. Noise levels have been tested and work done during Library opening hours will be kept within agreed limits. Noisier work will be done at night.
