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. You can see how demolition will proceed here>

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. If you find yourself adversely affected by noise, please consult the Health and Safety options for managing Noise at Work.

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.

Please contact the Project Managers Mark Homewood or Mary Watson with any concerns.
