Crane Lift: Building 69 & Surrounding Buildings

26 Jul 2023

There will be a crane in place Saturday 29 July on the northern and southern sides of Building 69 to accommodate the required roof replacement of Building 69. This will mean traffic management will be in place to safely divert pedestrians in and around the exclusion zone, whilst works are in operation. Major noisy works will also be completed as well as minor cutting and drilling to allow the reinstallation of sun shades to the building’s exterior facade.
