Library extension: The inner skin of blockwork is being built and a sample panel of brickwork has been built, and this is awaiting final tidying up before being presented for approval.
East Terrace: The Lecture theatre roof has had its formwork struck and is being tidies up. The internal waterproofing is being installed and blockwork built and the plant room has been formed.
The basic infrastructure work for the Kitchen is mostly complete, including the structural alterations, new drainage system, damp proofing and Mechanical & Electrical fist fix.
The first of the kitchen equipment has arrived and is being installed.
Lighting works to the Benchers Rooms and Upper Vestibule has commenced.
From mid-December the new engineered Oak flooring is being delivered, to enable laying in the Great Hall.
Gatehouse Court will remain closed to all vehicular traffic until summer 2018. Access from the rest of the Inn to the area, and between Chancery Lane and chambers will be maintained.
The space available would not have allowed a gantry design that would fully meet health and safety standards required by the Inn. Access will therefore remain at ground level as it has been since the start of work, with the gate system and builder's banksman to ensure that it is safe for pedestrians to cross. There will be times when the gates are shut when site traffic is passing, but these will be kept to the shortest possible waiting time.
From the Trinity 2016 dining term onwards all dining term dinners and lectures will take place in the Old Hall for the duration of the development works.
This also means new arrangements are in place - please familiarise yourself with the details here
