Polden project update

📥  Polden accommodation

Preparation works for the Polden accommodation block are now well underway. The trees from the footprint of the building have been removed and recycled in order to provide weed suppression to flower beds around campus.

Vinci Construction have also completed the erection of site security fencing around the construction activity, and the initial welfare accommodation has been delivered into the West Car Park.

Following the closure of the road adjacent to 7W and 9W, excavation for drainage has begun so that the live services can be diverted into the roadway. This consists of Foul and Storm drainage, IT and Comms cables, and HV power cables serving the surrounding buildings.

Excavation to reduce the ground for the new Polden building is nearing completion, with all the rock material being recycled and re-used off-campus.
