Concrete cutting near Puaka-James Hight

There will be concrete cutting work outside Puaka-James Hight  (near the bike stands on the south side of the building) starting on Thursday 1 February. This work is to connect underground services.

The work will take approximately two to three working days, and is expected to be noisy and generate some dust. Measures will be in place on site to help mitigate this.

Apologies for any inconvenience. Please contact the Project Manager, David Wong  with any concerns – david.wong@canterbury.ac.nz 

Road closed near Puaka-James Hight – Thurs 25 Jan

The road that runs from University Drive to Puaka-James Hight will be closed for the day on Thursday 25 January between the University Bookshop and Puaka-James Hight (see image below). This is due to excavation and trenching work being carried out.

There will be no entry to the accessible car parks outside the south-east end of Puaka-James Hight. Please use the accessible car parks outside the South Arts Lecture Theatre or Psychology building instead.

The University Bookshop car park will remain open.

Please follow traffic management in place and take care when near the work site.

Warehouse lecture theatre early works

Early works on the Warehouse Lecture Theatre  will begin on Monday 30 October under a tight schedule to ensure the theatres are ready for start of the first semester 2018. The schedule is as follows:

Early works – 30 Oct

  • Removal of Trees
  • Excavation of soils to make paths
  • Excavation to do some isolated foundation concrete works

Full construction to begin – 8 Nov 2018

  • Inside demolition of the warehouse – internal only
  • Internal concrete noise buffered by being inside the warehouse
  • Standard interior concrete and steel upgrade works
  • Interior fit-out works

None of these works are expected to impact on any examination locations because of the isolated location of the warehouse and interior nature of the work.

If you are at all concerned however, please email Project Manager David Wong.
