DMS Watson Roof Works

By Ricky Estwick, on 28 July 2016

Estates will be undertaking much needed repairs to the DMS Watson Science Library roof.

These works commenced over the weekend of 23rd and 24th of July with the erection of scaffolding around the DMS Watson Building and part of the Petrie Museum roof. The scaffolding work is being undertaken every weekend thereafter or after 6.30pm, Monday to Friday (optional) for the next three to four weeks to keep disruption to students and staff to a minimum.

The scaffolding is primarily being erected for access and safety reasons and will include protection for the building entrances. This project will be coordinated and managed by the principal contractor Sykes & Sons who with the sub-contractor will have attendance/banksmen on site to ensure this is carried out appropriately.

The works are expected to take approximately nine weeks inclusive of erection and removal of the scaffold.

Please ensure you take extra care when entering or exiting the DMS Watson and Petrie Museum buildings. Please inform the Library Buildings Team if you experience any problems relating to this project.
