The Old Library in Erith
Labour overcomes all things…
The strip out has started on Grade II listed building at The Old Library in Erith, within the London Borough of Bexley.
This is Phase 2 of a wider scheme which includes installation of new glazed partitions, restoration of the 1st and 2nd floor original features, a new lift and building services.
The Old Library is an important historic community facility that is now being run by The Exchange, and has received funding from the Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund and Community Fund amongst others.
Appleyard & Trew LLP are QS on the scheme, supporting the London Borough of Bexley, The Exchange, Robin Lee Architects and main contractor GA Harpers to deliver this scheme to budget, on time and to the required quality.
Kevin McGloin BSc(Hons) MSc MRICS, LLP Partner, was on site this week for a progress meeting and was delighted to receive a delicious birthday cake! The cake was hand made by the very talented chef from The Exchange’s Bookstore Cafe, which was fitted out as part of Phase 1. Well worth a visit for coffee, brunch and dinner too!
Topsoil is currently being placed on our Whatton Grange landscaping scheme. The project has now reached the stage of laying the stone pathways. There is still a way to go. The external lighting is on order and, with the lawned area, will totally transform this elegant garden into probably one of the best in Nottinghamshire.
Appleyard & Trew are providing Quantity Surveying services on this exciting project.
Thackray Museum of Medicine
Heads up: A joint effort getting to the heart of the building at Thackray Museum of Medicine refurbishment this week. All eyes are on the demolition of the central area for new stairs and Bermar are well armed with plenty of muscle on site to help steady the nerves. Needless to say, it will be a hip place to visit and we are already seeing the elbow grease and fruits of the blood, sweat and tears from all involved, getting their teeth stuck into the project. Another visit next week to see how many square feet of masonry has been removed which is in safe hands with Bermar Building Co Ltd
