Fall Term Construction and Disruption on LG1

UPDATED 12 November 2009: In order to combine a second project involving overhead duct replacements, the North end of LG1 will remain blocked off for an additional 2 months, until the end of January 2010.  The Library apologizes for the added inconvenience.


As part of the building extension works, the contractor will be doing some work on the North end of LG1 for 2 Months starting at the end of September.

Two group study rooms and the HSS study room will be closed during this period, and the LG1 Seminar room and another study room will be closed for about 1 week while the contractor installs protective hoardings.

All books and bookshelves will remain accessible during this period, but all the carrels from along the wall and from the HSS room have been moved to the 1/F main hallway.

FMO reports that throughout these 2 months there will be significant noise and vibration, and sometimes an odor of burning from welding works.

Basically, the contractor will be punching some holes though the wall connecting some steel beams and doing some work on the columns as the first step towards joining the existing building and the new extension.

We apologize for the extreme inconvenience caused by this construction, but it is necessary as part of our efforts to improve the Library and prepare it for the 3-3-4 changes.  Please be understanding during this difficult period.
