The structural steel for the building’s top layer is being installed, setting up the framework for the next stage of roofing works in early 2017.
In the past month we have also seen the completion of the services rough in and construction of the impressive library staircase.
Looking ahead, it will continue to be busy onsite until the end of the year. Plasterers will start work in the gallery and library. In the theatre, framing and installation of the floor will start to bring this key feature to life.
As we prepare for the timber grid shell to arrive onsite early next year, a 50 m long truss is being constructed to provide structural support so this unique piece can be easily installed.
Moving into the new year will see a number of internal fit-out contracts awarded and exterior building facades will continue to be fitted.
