Selwyn’s building site

Work is intensifying on the site of Selwyn’s new library and auditorium. A piling rig has been installed, and a crane will soon follow. The photo, taken from the roof of Cripps Court, shows where construction is underway on the corner of Grange Road and West Road.

The building will complete Ann’s Court, and it’s hoped it will be finished by the end of 2020. In the initial phase a concrete box will be formed in the ground. Then, towards the end of this year, the ground floor slab will be cast; and we anticipate the erection of the steel frame and floors before the Christmas break.
