Library of Birmingham – Report as at 22/10/10

The library is growing at quite a pace now. Core B, to accommodate lifts and stairs, (shown in the top left corner with Core A to its right)  has this week been completed by the Slipform method and went up a lot faster than Core A as the team’s experience and skill increased.

A large part of the basement ceiling has been constructed and work has started on the framework of the ground floor ceiling. (Click on images for a larger view).

The photo above and those below were taken by one of the crane drivers from Tower Crane 2 on 20th October.

A small party of interested people who had applied for tickets were shown the site by Carillion’s Sinead Mackenzie in the yellow jacket.
