Progress on site

No major story to report on this week, so today’s blog post will be a series of recent photos showing progress on site – so first up is a photograph taken a couple of weeks ago when we had a crane back on site for the delivery of paving slabs onto the roof of the Promenade – I loved the combination of the glazing, the white crane and the glorious blue sky!


Next we have an image of the triangular shaped piers between the windows from the Lower Promenade, facing out into the Art Garden – there will be seats between them, making it a lovely place to sit in the summer.


Inside the Lower promenade, our ISG contractors are hard at work on the new brick arches to the Collections Access Area. Wooden formers have been made to support the bricks as they are laid. Over the next few weeks, new glazed screens will be installed in each of the arches (Go to:, for a reminder of how this new facility will look and feel).


And finally, work is progressing on the lift shaft that will provide access from the south end of our Textile Gallery down to cloakroom facilities on the lower ground floor, and up to the new Grand Hall at first floor level. A considerable amount of earth has been dug out to a level below the existing foundations of the building, and these have been underpinned with concrete – visible to the right of the photo.
