Library of Birmingham – Report as at 12/02/11

Library of Birmingham Site Snapshot Feb 2011

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

I’m told that:

The first concrete pour at the third floor level was started on Thursday 10 February. That is the height of the first terrace and will overlook centenary square.

The little crane that went up in January is coming back out on Sunday this weekend, having erected the studio theatre steelwork and part of Core C in that area.

The remaining demolition to part of the REP commences on Saturday this weekend.

Library of Birmingham rear view on 8 Feb 2011

Here is a view of the rear of the library I took on Tuesday last 8 February. You can see that floor 2 is well established but floor 3 has not really been started although this is advancing well at the front.
