Excavation on site likely to cause noise disruption

Filed under: Campus news, Latest news — Tags: , , — Communications, CER @ 5:09 pm

Contractors working on our Library extension and Student Services Centre (LESC) building have discovered a quantity of buried concrete which will have to be removed, without delay, to enable vital drainage works to continue.

This work will involve saw cutting and breaking up of large pieces of concrete.

In order to alleviate any noise disturbance this may cause, acoustic screens will be put up to shield those living and working around the area.

Acoustic screening has been very effective on the library extension and it is hoped that they will again reduce the amount of disturbance felt.

The work will begin on Thursday 30 January and is estimated to take between one and two days to complete. It will be carried out between 9am and 5pm.

Should this work create any operational difficulties for staff working in the vicinity, they are advised to contact the Estates Helpdesk on ext 2959.

Our new Library extension and Student Services Centre is an exciting project which will ultimately bring a raft of benefits for our students. However, there is no way of expanding and improving our campus without construction of this kind and we thank you for your continued co-operation and patience during this time.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.

Student Centre

Preliminary work has started to create an ‘acoustic screen’ on the east elevation of the existing Albert Sloman Library Building at our Colchester Campus, in preparation for building work to start on the new Student Centre and Library extension at the end of April 2013.

This major two-year project is at the heart of our commitment to offer excellence in education, by providing the best possible facilities to current and future Essex students. The project has an expected completion date of late 2014.
