Library of Birmingham February 2012 Update

Since my previous update of the 12th January, Library of Birmingham January 2012 Update, there has been rapid progress on the new Libary of Birmingham.

The February site update from Carillion below shows progress.

One of the most visible changes, notwithstanding the continuing enveloping of the library in fretwork, is the removal of the tower crane. The crane, the tallest of several cranes used in the library's construction and at 100m one of the tallest in the country, was erected over a weekend in July 2010 and was dismantled over the weekend of the 11 February 2012.

The structure for the rep extension has almost been completed ready for it's glazing which will be undertaken through vertical channel glass with full glazing sections as shown below in renders from the planning application. The glass will be installed by specialist contractor J+C Architectural working with Lindner Facades.

The photos below i've taken show progress on the new library since my previous update in early January.
