Michael Sadler Building Disruption: 17 March for six-weeks

Date of disruption: Saturday 17 March for a six-week period

Engie, the contractor employed by the University and NHS Trust to fit out the Generating Station Complex (GSC), will be digging a trench from the footpath between Social Sciences and the Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building around Michael Sadler Building to the corner of Baines Wing – this is to lay ducts to allow the installation of new electrical cables. The trench work will start on Saturday 17 March 2018 for a six-week period.

Services to be interrupted: External access disruption, local digging noise, and local road traffic management.

Effects of this interruption upon building occupants: Potential local digging noise and access disruption.

Information for disabled staff and students: The automatic single side door to Michael Sadler will be closed for four weekends, 17/18 March, 24/25 March, 30/1 April, and 7/8 April. Unfortunately this severely restricts disabled access.

For alternative entry to the Michael Sadler building, enter Baines Wing via the main entrance (automatic doors), then:

– Travel up the ramp past the reception area and turn right
– Continue along the corridor and up the ramp, following signs to Parkinson Court
– When you reach the doorway at the end of the corridor, turn right into another corridor, away from Parkinson Court.
– Go through two sets of automatic doors, towards Philosophy
– As you enter Philosophy (end of the corridor), take the automatic door to the right and then turn right.
– You are now on the ground floor of Michael Sadler and can navigate to the accessible lifts further along the corridor (automatic doors in between).

Generating Station Complex

Work is now underway to upgrade the Generating Station Complex which serves the University and the Leeds General Infirmary.

Over the next two years an investment of £27m will be made at the site located on Clarendon Road, adjacent to the Light, resulting in upgraded facilities with increased capabilities to meet the projected future energy demands of the University and Hospital.

The University currently obtains a high percentage of its energy from the Generating Station Complex, which provides the university campus with 75% of its energy in the form of low temperature hot water, steam, chilled water and electricity.
