The work is running to schedule and the clearing of the remaining fixtures and fittings has now been completed. The real demolition work will start next week. This is when the sledge hammers will come out and the internal walls will come down. The contractors have agreed to try to carry out the noisiest work outside of peak hours.

One of the large second floor windows has been removed and a hoist is now in place providing an interesting access route for the contractors and all the necessary materials to the second floor!

As part of general maintenance work two of the AET labs on the third floor; LS304 and LS305 will also be closed from Monday 22nd June for approximately six weeks. The Main IT lab; LS406 on the fourth floor will remain open as normal.

Meanwhile work continues on refurbishing three of the IT labs at Headingley. When finished they will be lighter and brighter, similar to the labs that were refurbished in Summer 2014.
