Building 9 Lift Refurbishments
Please be aware that the existing lift in Building 9 is to be replaced to provide a new lift, compliant with current building and DDA requirements.
There is only one lift that services Building 9. There will only be stair access to upper level C & D during the installation period, 30 November to 15 February 2016. Levels A and B can be accessed from rear of Building 9 and the Concourse.
Due to ongoing maintenance, please be aware that there will be some closures to entrances to Building 9, 20 and the adjacent stairs throughout January and February. The contractor will look to minimise disruption as much as possible during this period.
