Summer 2014 update

As of August 2014, the project continues well. Over the summer, major structural works have been completed to allow the build of the new lecture theatre at second floor level.

The building is now protected behind scaffolding and a waterproof covering, allowing the construction team to commence repairs to the brickwork and stonework on the facades. The existing windows are being replaced throughout, and the installation of new windows has commenced on the east facade. Internally, the new passenger lift shafts are under construction, and the majority of demolition work is coming to an end.

During the autumn the project will move into its second phase. This sees the first fix of the mechanical and electrical systems and the modernisation of the internal rooms to provide the new design layouts.

Room booking - whilst it seems rather premature to be formalising such things I was interested to read in Member's New no 35 that the hire arrangements had been established for the new facilities. I am surprised that IET events have to pay a hire charge albeit "only" 50%. room hire discounts will be available to others but not it seems members - unless they are members of other institutions (as mentioned) perhaps?. Room hire always seemed high to me whenever I tried to book and usually cheaper at a hotel which seems daft. any thoughts on pricing or members' use?.
