UCSA building site – October and November work

Work is now well under way on the UCSA building site. Here’s what’s happening over the next few weeks.

October

  • Ground beams and foundations – excavation work is progressing.
  • Trenching work and drilling  bores has started at the Ilam Road end of the site.
  • There will be some noise as a result of this work, and a small number of concrete trucks coming and going from site.

November

  • Concrete pours – the slab will be poured section by section. There will be one or two trucks coming and going from site at any one time.
  • Construction and assembly of Precast Panels on-site.
  • Structural steel work due to start.
  • Bore drilling at the Health Centre end of the site is also expected to start after exams.

Study break and exams
Noise levels are expected to be low over the study break and exam period, however this will be monitored. If you have any concerns please contact David Wong, Project Manager Capital Works – david.wong@canterbury.ac.nz

Think first.
Please take care when walking, cycling, skateboarding or driving near the UCSA building site. Watch for construction vehicles and look out for others.

Construction work near Health Centre/UCSA site

Construction work on a new sub-station is under way near the Health Centre/UCSA site. The sub-station will service buildings in the area.

Temporary fencing is in place around the work site. Two car parks will be unavailable during the work to allow construction vehicle access.

Please follow any detours and signage in place around the work area. Take care when travelling through the area and look out for others.

Kia mataara. Think first.

Think first and win… and take care around construction sites!

It’s an exciting time to be at UC as we’ve got a few building projects on the go that will provide you with modern learning spaces and some of the latest technology.

While these buildings are still construction sites, please take care when you’re near them.

  • Watch out for trucks and other construction vehicles coming and going – especially when you’re near a site entrance.
  • Follow any detours in place near building sites, and if traffic management staff are present follow their instructions.
  • Whether you’re walking, biking, skateboarding or driving near a construction site on campus, slow down and look out for others.

Kia mataara. He wāhi whakatū whare tēnei.
Take care around construction sites on campus. Think first.
