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.



Further photos taken on the day are shown below.
