One of our vibrant campus initiatives was the Student Experience timeline on the hoardings outside the new Education building. The aim was to show today’s students how student life has always been a desirable and unforgettable “experience” and give them a sense that they’re not only part of something “now” but to something that is a long and exciting tradition.
During the process, we uncovered so many great historic photographs that we also digitised and dropped them into short videos that each spanned a 40 year era. You can check them all out here: who knows – they might inspire you to go and view the full size timeline!
As part of our campus transformation programme, a number of exceptionally large concrete pours will occur on the Ilam campus between now and the end of 2015. The first of these takes place next on Monday 31 August on the RSIC site.
In all – 1250m3 of concrete will be poured into the foundations which contractors have been preparing for over the past few months. From start to finish, the pour will take up to 14 hours beginning at 12.00am on Monday morning.
Special traffic management plans are in place, with up to 400 truck movements involved. There could be six moving onto site and six moving off site at any one time, with areas allocated on campus to hold up to another six if necessary.
A major exercise in logistics and a real milestone for the project.
A specialist truck needs to access the area between Electrical Link and the Core tomorrow in order to drive earthing poles into the ground. This requires a portion of the hoardings that keep the public out of the site to be removed temporarily.
Any truck movements outside hoardings will be time to occur while lectures are in session and foot traffic is minimal, and spotters will be engaged on each side of the truck.
Once the earth poles are driven in, the truck will exit via the same route and the hoarding replaced. Please take extra care around this area tomorrow.
