Please be advised that the NRLF building expansion project will commence at the end of May. The projected completion date of the fourth shelving module is fall of 2020.
Because the construction site is on the west side of the building complex, we expect minimal disruption to our daily operation. Library users will continue to have access to the reading room during our normal business hours, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except university holidays.
Noise: Construction noise should be moderate.
Traffic and Parking: All construction-related traffic to the Richmond Field Station (RFS) will be routed through an alternate access gate, so access to the RFS through the main entrance, as well as parking at NRLF, should not be affected.
Dust and Dirt: We anticipate minimal impact. The contractor will have dust control measures in place.
Security: The contractor will put up a fence that will demarcate the construction area, as well as signage in strategic places. Please be mindful and stay safe when you enter or leave NRLF or the field station.
