As indicated last month, see here, we are planning upgrades to the stairwells and first floor flooring.
The works on the stairwells will commence on Monday 25 November.
There will be some noisy works during the day and access to one stairwell will be closed for at least 2 days while these works are being undertaken. Each stairwell will be done in turn to allow access to the first floor.
First Floor Flooring
The replacement of the timber flooring on the first floor will start on Saturday 30 November at around 12 midday starting on the Palmerston Lane end of the building.
While the aim is to have the floor down by Sunday evening this is dependent upon the condition of the sub-floor. If the sub-floor is not level and floor leveller needs to be applied then the flooring will have to wait until the weekend after to allow the leveller time to set. The floor can be walked on during this time.
Access to Toilets
During the works the toilers will remain accessible except for the weekend when the flooring begins. The contractor will place a barricade up as there won’t be a handrail for a couple days during the balustrade change over.
