Major building works for Clare Hall scheduled next summer

During the summer of 2017 we will be undertaking major works on our main accommodation block to repair the concrete walkways and balconies. The appointed contractors will have control of the area and access will be restricted.  The work will mean that there will be some noise disturbance and usual college activities may need to be very carefully planned during these dates.  The residential accommodation will not be let during this period and will remain empty so that the contractors and maintenance team can focus on the project and complete the works by the date that has been set.  The concrete will be power washed and then hammer guns will be used to expose the rusting reinforcement bars, the surfaces will be chemically treated and then new concrete surfaces applied.  The finished areas will then be repainted.  

College members are asked to make a note of these dates and consider the activities that they are planning during this period.  The work will run from 17 July - until 1 September 2017.  We envisage by 4 Sept everything will be finished and Clare Hall will once again be our quiet place to think.
