Library of Birmingham – Report as at 14/01/11

Carillion has released to us January’s The Site publication about the Library of Birmingham development as shown here. Click image to enlarge.

I’m informed that:

The demolition of the library end of the Rep will be starting in February.

The first pour of concrete on the second floor will be Friday, 14th (but to my observations this did not happen).

The acoustic pads are currently being installed for the Studio Theatre (they stop the sound from the theatre going through to the Library).

The smaller crane that went up last weekend is primarily for use on Core C and the erection of the theatre studio steel frame.

The hope is to complete a floor every 3/4 weeks once the second floor has been completed.
