Library of Birmingham New Year Update (Jan 2011)

Following my update on works taking place on the new Library of Birmingham in November 2010, Library of Birmingham November 2010 Update II, here is an update from Carillion from December. Below the Carillion update are photos taken on the 11th January 2011 showing ongoing work.

Meanwhile, Saturday 8th January saw the closure of the REP to enable it's redevelopment as part of it's integration into the new Library of Birmingham, Final curtain for Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The new REP will open in 2013, the Centenary year for the REP, with REP performances taking place in venues across the city while work takes place on it's redevelopment.
