Construction of the Sir William Henry Bragg Building

Date of disruption: from Monday 5 March until summer 2020

Work begins to prepare for the construction of the Sir William Henry Bragg Building.

Effects of these works: On 5 March the construction company BAM will erect new hoardings along Woodhouse Lane. This will result in disrupted walking routes and some potential traffic delays along Woodhouse Lane. Full construction work will commence late May and will be on site for two years.

For staff and students this will mean: Some walking routes will be restricted during this period. There will no longer be a through route between the arches near the School of Chemistry to Woodhouse Lane. Please see the map below for more detail.

For deliveries this will mean: The delivery and exit routes near to the School of Chemistry will be under BAM’s control. When on site, BAM will guide delivery vehicles onto and off the site. 

Further information: Please bear with us as we deliver this significant project. The Sir William Henry Bragg Building is the largest single investment to date in our estate and will become home to the Schools of Computing and Physics and Astronomy, with direct links to the School of Chemistry and Faculty of Engineering.  The new building will incorporate the Bragg Centre for Materials Research, which will bring together researchers from schools across the University campus and beyond, to create an environment generating ground-breaking, interdisciplinary, research and to accelerate impact to society.

Clothworkers South: Noise Disruption

 

Refurbishment works are continuing within the Clothworkers South building as part of the 3D Weaving Innovation Centre project. The works have been extended beyond the original completion dates due to additional asbestos removal works having to be carried out in the buildings below ground duct zones. The duct zones required clearance to allow for the buildings services to be connected and completed.

 

We are aware that the ongoing works are creating some issues in terms of noise disruption. To minimize the impact of the ongoing works we are implementing the following measures:

  • Works onsite commencing at 6.00am to carry out the most intrusive and prolonged noisy work, prior to commencement of teaching
  • Teaching timetables have been provided to the project team so that other ongoing works can be targeted around scheduled teaching periods
  • All operatives onsite are undergoing tool box talks by William Birch to raise awareness of the impact their refurbishment activities can have on the occupants of Clothworkers South, and the need for them to work considerately.

 

Please see below, floor plans of the building, depicting where works are still ongoing and showing current forecasted completion dates.

We are continuing to work closely with the occupants of Clothworkers to complete the works as speedily as possible, whilst also being mindful of the buildings day-to-day activities.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Temporary Closure of Vernon Road

Essential work will take place on Vernon Road to extend the district heating main to the new Nexus building.

This work is part of the two-year, £38m investment scheme to construct Nexus; our new, sector-leading innovation and enterprise centre.

The work means there will be no access to the Multi-Storey car park from Woodhouse Lane.

  • Travelling from the north of the city will involve taking a slightly longer route, as access will be diverted via Calverley Street and the Willow Terrace Road entrance, over the Inner Ring Road bridge.
  • From 4pm each day, an alternative route, underneath Physics deck, will be opened to allow traffic to exit north via Woodhouse Lane.
  • Pedestrian access will remain open throughout the works.
  • HGV deliveries will also be affected due to the weak bridge crossing the Inner Ring Road at Calverley Street / Willow Terrace Road, which has a weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes.
