The second phase comprised:


Also included was a new lift in an existing shaft in the nearby Invicta Building.
The builders works for this was limited to extending the shaft through the roof and some relatively minor internal alterations. The Invicta Building was also fully
operational during this process.

As with most educational establishments the operational/ educational needs require top priority and this project was no different with considerable safety and access issues and the need to accommodate exams in the adjacent hall.

Close liaison with the Estates Department Team assisted in ensuring the project.
