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.

If you are having any issues working due to noise levels, please consult the Health and Safety options for managing Noise at Work and/or talk to your line manager about possible alternative options.

Any concerns should be addressed to the Project Managers Mark Homewood or Mary Watson.

 

RRSIC Stage 2 – protective walkway

Dominion Constructors will commence erection of a protective walkway to go between the RRSIC Stage 2 demolition project and  the Central Lecture Theatres on Thursday at 6:00 am. The work will continue through Friday, with completion scheduled for Saturday.

The contractors are aware that they will need to stop work for approximately 15 minutes at the start and end of lectures and they will have spotters in place while working to ensure the safety of both staff and students.

Please be advised that this work is necessary to ensure the safety of the University community through the duration of the demolition of the building, which is scheduled to commence in the following week.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
