Good News for the Trades: Hull’s Library Renovation Scheme to Create New Jobs
“The new redevelopment is to bring employment opportunities for trade professionals”
A multimillion redevelopment scheme at the University of Hull’s historic library has been given the green light with the appointment of its main contractor that will refurbish the 16,000 square-metre building and provide new employment opportunities for people in the trades.
Today’s appointment of BAM Construction will provide the eight-storey library with new facades, mechanical and engineering services.
Building work is set to start this month, with the main scheme getting underway in November 2012. The project will continue for 3 years and is expected to be completed by 2014.
The project is expected to meet the world’s leading environmental and rating system for buildings, BREEAM.
BAM said in a statement today that it will hold suppliers days to attract local labour and provide employment opportunities for trade professionals, including plumbers, electricians and gas engineers.
BAM’s Construction Director, Kelvin Pollard, said that the company is delighted to bring such impressive library to the forefront of modern design and technology which will encourage economic growth and create new jobs.
Mr Pollard said: “This major project will benefit the local economy and will ensure the library remains operational throughout. When complete, students will benefit from lighter, airier spaces that are more conducive to study and better equipped for modern learning.”
