Building takes shape

Submitted on 3 August 2020

Good progress is being made on the construction of the Bartlam library and the Quarry Whitehouse auditorium on the site at the corner of Grange Road and West Road. The latest photographs show the brickwork rising on the west-facing side of the building, and the arches are in place on the colonnade which will be part of the interior of Ann’s Court.

The delay caused by the health emergency means that completion is now expected to be in March 2021. The total cost is estimated to be £12.6m, which has been fully funded by alumni and friends.
