Ground floor (Car Park) – Contractors Compound Set‐up
  • Hoardings made of wooden ply will be built around the designated space. Hoarding construction should be nearing completion by the end of the week. Disturbance – low‐level disturbance due to the use of hand and electric tools, negated by external background noise.
  • The Heras fencing will stay in place until the timber hoarding has been painted.
  • Contractor deliveries to the site will be frequent, but measures are in place to control traffic flow –they are not expected to restrict the movements of delivery vans or visitors.
‐1 Basement (Lankester room) – Asbestos Removal Works Continuing
  • A small amount of asbestos requires removal from the ceiling void of the Lankester room, currently sheeted off with polythene. Disturbance – medium‐level disturbance due to the use of hand and electric tools. Negative pressure extraction fans units will be running continuously causing low‐level disturbance.
  • Contractors will access the area via the fire escape stairs on the Abbot’s Kitchen side of the library.
‐2 Basement (The Stack) – Racking Removal Continuing – Core Drilling of Basement Slab
  • Fixed racking and shelving continuing to be removed. Works will last a further two to three weeks. Disturbance – some low‐level noise and disturbance from the use of hand and electric tools and manual handling of metal and wooden rack components.
  • Core drilling (stitch drilling) of lift pit in basement slab, anticipated to last approx. 2‐3 weeks. Disturbance – medium to high level of noise (example: equivalent to that of a vacuum cleaner running next to your desk constantly)
