Brynmor Jones Library Redevelopment update

·         The remainder of the ground floor, excluding the east entrance, gallery and exhibition space, is now open.  This includes Teaching Rooms 1 & 2, soft seating, quick print PCs and the remainder of the Welcome Desk turnstiles.  The Library and Learning Innovation Training Rooms are also situated in this area.  Contractors are currently commissioning the AV in the teaching and training rooms and they will be in use from Monday 17 November.

·         The gallery and exhibition space are due to be handed over week commencing 24 November.  It will then be possible to start moving the University Art Collection into the new gallery.

·         The redevelopment of the original east entrance is due to be completed in the course of December.

External works, excluding the area around the BAM compound and site offices, should be finished by the end of this month, at which point the fences will be removed.
