Protection of Lasdun Wall entrances

Commencing Friday 8 November works will start to protect a number of Lasdun Wall entrances from high winds.

 

Once protected access to these entrances will not need to be restricted in the event of high winds.

 

The two entrances subject to works first are:

  • The accessible entrance to ARTS 1 (floor 01) 
  • The middle SCIENCES (SCI PVC) entrance 

The Chemistry and BIO walkway entrances will be subject to works at a later date.

 

Unfortunately these works are likely to be noisy and restrict access and your co-operation will be greatly appreciated.

 

Friday 8 November - scaffolding will be delivered and a base layer erected by the 02 level gas cages below the middle SCIENCES Lasdun Wall entrance.

 

This will require the restriction of the loading bay doors for a few hours as the base layer is completed.

 

Tuesday 12 November PM - the ARTS entrance will be closed to enable erection of scaffolding. Access will not be possible between the Chemistry Garden and walkway to the accessible entrance of Arts 1 (floor 01) during this time.

  • As part of this work, the ramped access to the Chemistry motorcycle parking opposite ITCS will be closed and will remain closed until the major spandrel panel remediation works are undertaken next year (Please note this ramped access is not part of the accessible route)
  • The rest of the accessible ramp adjacent to the ARTS building from the Registry will remain open, providing access to the ITCS lift (and to 02/roadway level) and to the ARTS Post Room.
  • Alternative accessible route into the ARTS building will be via the Post Room loading bay on the Chancellors Drive side of the ARTS building until the scaffolding is complete by the accessible Arts 1 (floor 01) entrance.

At later points throughout the week access will be managed and restricted at certain points to enable completion of scaffolding.

As part of these works and to enable correct positioning of the scaffolding tower, some spaces within the Arts/Chemistry motorcycle parking will be closed.

Wednesday 13 November AM - the Middle SCIENCES entrance will be closed to enable erection of scaffolding. Access to this entrance will not be possible during this time.

  • Access will be possible to the Sciences building via the LSB entrance or ENV entrance during this time.

At later points throughout the week access will be managed and restricted at certain points to enable completion of scaffolding.
