Old von Haast – Demolition update

Hard demolition of the old Von Haast building will commence the first week of March and continue through to the end of April. It is expected that noise will peak in mid-March and mid-April with the removal of the foundation slabs and the back filling of these spaces.

A protective walkway is being built between the demolition site, the School of Biological Sciences and the Central Lecture Theatres. Please note that during this demolition phase the pathways around the demolition may change due to temporary closures and/or spotters may be put in place. Please obey any signage or instructions given by the spotters. These are in place to keep everyone safe.

UCSA building site update – April

Early enabling works and ground improvements are continuing on the UCSA building site.

During April and May a large excavator will be carrying out earthworks and stabilising the ground. Large machinery will also be on site compacting gravel.

Noise levels are likely to increase – as well as general construction noise, there will be heavy compaction of gravel and truck movements.

Please take care when travelling near the site – watch for construction vehicles coming and going.

Note – The footbridge located between the UCSA site and University Drive (opposite the University Bookshop) will remain closed until the end of May. Please continue to use the two footbridges located between the Health Centre and University Drive (opposite the ICT car park). See more information

All early enabling works and ground improvements are expected to be completed by June.
