Library refurbishment update: refit begins

Work has now begun on the refit of levels 1 and 2 of the University Library.  The contractors are currently laying screed to level out the floor on level 1. The second image shows where the new holes in the ceiling have been cut, to make space for the lightwell and new staircase down from level 2.  Ultimately this level will house over 100 new study spaces.

Work has also begun on level 2, where there will be a new Library Services area, self-service facilities, an exhibition space, and a range of flexible furniture to encourage collaborative working and where we can deliver information sessions throughout the year. We hope to have some images from the design team to share with you in our next update – watch this space for more information.
