Library of Birmingham – Digging out the Basement

The digging out of the basement of the library will commence next week.

This follows the installation during February of concrete piles below ground which form the foundations.

Simon Dingle, Carrilion’s Operations Director, says that this stage is expected to take 12 weeks. During this time they will  be taking lorries on site to load them with earth which they will transport to another site.

Simon says the lorries should not become stacked up along Cambridge Street.
