SUMMER 2018 WORKS BRIEFING
Chapel window survey
For insurance and project purposes, we will be surveying and recording the chapel window during w/c 18 June. This will include the use of the cherry picker on Front Court for approximately 2 days. Please observe the restrictions and signage.
Power outage 20 June
As detailed already by e-mail, we are in the process of installing a water heat exchange unit in Bin Brook. Part of the installation is the need to provide power, the source being from the main intake room. Preparatory to progressing this, we need to determine the best connection terminal and this involves accessing the main electrical intake panel. To do this, we will be isolating the power on the afternoon of Wednesday 20th June at 2.30pm for up to 2 hours.
Heat, light and power isolations will affect the Main College Building, 1 Sylvester Road, 1A Sylvester Road, 4 Adams Road, CWB.
IT network, internet, etc in all parts of College - to prepare for this interruption, we will start to take down the servers in a controlled way from 2:15pm and the network may not be back up and running until 5pm.

This project has been ongoing since mid-March – thank you for your patience and cooperation. Building works are expected to be completed by mid-July with furniture fitting then ongoing to mid-August. The house will be ready for student occupation to coincide with the start of Graduate arrivals 22 September 2018.
One tree on the boundary between 2 Sylvester and 1A Sylvester will be removed during w/c 13 August.

Strengthening works have been ongoing since w/c 4 June and are expected to be completed during w/c 25 June. Once completed, vehicular and pedestrian access will be reinstated on this route but the car park will remain CLOSED.
