Work ramps up next week through to end of January 2012 for the Building 6 Podium Extension. All staff and students who use Building 6 should read this story to understand the impact.
The construction work is creating new-look teaching and learning spaces in Building 6, levels 3-7, featuring integrated technology, polished concrete floors, bold colours and exposed finishes.
As reported in our last UTS: InProgress, essential upgrade works in Building 6 will impact staff and students from 16 December – 31 January with restricted access throughout the building.
PROJECT SO FAR
- Modifications to the existing Building 6 podium and the full refurbishment of levels 3-7 providing additional teaching and learning space
- Toilets on levels 3, 4 and 5 (near the lifts) are now closed until early February 2012. Other facilities are available during this time, please follow directional signage
- The hoist on the UPN facing facade has been removed, replaced by scaffolding in anticipation of completing the facade
The central stair area of Building 6 and the lifts will be closed to staff and students from 16 December to 31 January 2012 as this area will become a construction zone. Vehicles will still be able to access the car park but the lifts will not be in use.
A power shutdown is required in Building 6 on 17 December between 2pm - 4pm.
Directional signage will be placed throughout Building 6 to assist with access to Summer School areas and available toilets, so please follow the instructions.
