von Haast demolition update

You’ll have noticed the hoardings going up around von Haast in preparation for demolition.

This is scheduled to begin late November once exams are completed. Work will commence initially at the northern end, and a week later, also from the southern end.

The contractors will work from 7.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday and from 7.00am to 4.00pm on Saturdays.

As demolition proceeds, dust will be managed on site with water as required, however it is unavoidable that some noise and vibration will be felt by those in the immediate area.

Extra truck movements will be restricted to the SBS car park and Forestry Road out to Creyke Road, with no impacts expected on the wider campus.

During the first phase of demolition (late Nov – Dec) a temporary diversion of the north/south accessway through the Engineering Core will be required. Signage will be in place to indicate the detour.

The demolition is expected to be completed by mid February when the hoardings will be reconfigured in preparation for construction of the new building.

Ilam Fields cycleway works

Starting next week, 24 October, contractors will be conducting works on a section of the cycleway that goes through Ilam Field. This will necessitate closing off that section while they dig under the pathway.

Only minor disruption is expected over a two week period, and signage will be in place to detour cycles and pedestrians. As always please take care of your self and others around any construction works.
