Floors and form work
The weather has been kind to us, and the building is taking shape at a rapid rate.
The ground floor has been poured, as have the exposed concrete columns supporting the upper levels. The majority of the floor for level one is down, and we can see already the views students on this level will have from the east-facing group study area. Next comes level two, our first mezzanine floor housing the second level of the book stacks.
Cranes are busy hoisting materials into position as the fabric of the building takes increasing shape. We are well and truly 'out of the ground' and the scale of the building is becoming clear.
The next few months will, we expect, bring equally fast changes to life. The Library wishes everyone a safe holiday period and a Merry Christmas - watch for a post-Christmas period update!
