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.

RRSIC Stage 2 – von Haast update

On Monday 4 September, the accessible ramp and general access from the north side of SBS will be closed off and a new accessibility ramp will be installed on the south side.

Site hoardings along the eastern side of von Haast, outside Central Lectures theatres, are scheduled to be erected during the mid-term break between 28 August and 8 September. This will significantly reduce the width of the access pathway into SBS and C Block but will not affect emergency egress.
