The contractors for the project, Beard Construction, have now been appointed and are working alongside the project team developing the construction programme.

The first phase of works this summer will include initial works to construct lift shafts for the new BLL lift, the installation of roller racking in the area currently occupied by the IECL and works to the ground floor toilets by Lecture Theatre 2. Works will also take place in the Law Board Room and Baker and McKenzie room to construct new staff accommodation for the BLL.

From August 2015, for the academic year 2015-16, both the Law Board Room and Baker and McKenzie room will be unavailable due to the works.
