Project update Winter 2012-13

Following a Council meeting on 17th September 2012 it was resolved to accept the landmark gift from Professor Saw|| and to approve the naming of the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre.

The Saw Swee Hock Student Centre is now progressing well, the structure is nearing completion with the final levels being built over the next few weeks. The brickwork and timber cladding is underway at lower levels and it won’t be long before this is visible above the hoarding line.  Have a look through the two viewing windows in the hoarding outside 1 Portsmouth Street and you will be able to see the timber curtain walling that looks down into the new venue space and across into the new Three Tuns. Services are now being installed at basement and mezzanine level. The project is on target to complete in late 2013.  The live web cam|| is still a great way to monitor the projects' progress as well as the photographs in the Gallery of Images|| and for our film which links photographs of works completed to date, see NSC Work in Progress film||.

Westminster City Council (WCC) restrict work on the site to between 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am - 1pm Saturday. The hours of working for noise control remain unchanged with restricted noisy works to between 8am-10am, 12noon-2pm and 4pm-6pm.

Monthly drop-in sessions are held on the first Friday of each month by LSE Capital Development and Geoffrey Osborne, between 2-3pm, in Osborne's offices in the Parish Hall, first floor. These are specifically targeted at the users of surrounding buildings who may wish to discuss the effects of the project, however all project related questions are welcomed.
