Contractors (PTC) will be demolishing the remaining part of building 58A on the morning of Saturday 24 September 2016, starting at 08:00.
It is anticipated that the physical demolition of the building should be complete in 3 hours. The last part of building 58A is the roof section tight to the pedestrian footpath.
In order to safely demolish this section PTC will;
- Close the footpath to pedestrians 10 meters before the timber hoarding to the east and by the site entrance on the west.
- Pedestrians will be diverted across Salisbury road by signs and PTC operatives, they will walk along the footpath parallel to Zepler Building and be diverted back onto the footpath on Building 58 side at the other end.
- The PTC operatives on Salisbury road will be in Two-way radio communication with the plant operator, to stop him working in the event of a vehicle needing to pass or any emergency.
The PTC contractors will remain on site to continue clearing waste. The pedestrian pavement will be reopened to the public, as soon as it is deemed safe by the demolition expert.
As part of the University’s Gower South development, on Monday 26 September works will commence to excavate landscaping between Buildings 58 and 2.
This work involves the use of a small digger, and a tipper to remove earth from the site. These construction vehicles will access the excavation site via the car park to the rear of Building 58 and the adjoining access road between Buildings 58 and 54.
To ensure the safe movement of construction traffic in the excavation area, this access road has been closed to pedestrians. Pedestrians are advised to use the footway between Building 54 and the Turner Sims, as detailed in this plan:

The Post Room is pro-actively looking at ways to help reduce overall University postal costs. By identifying high spending departments the team can help find alternatives or make suggestions for expenditure reduction.
The University Post Room
However, there are some easy steps we can all take to help reduce postal costs:
The simplest way of saving money is sending mail 2nd class – typically delivered within 2-3 working days (including Saturdays) 2nd class post is 25% cheaper than 1st class.
Interestingly, using a smaller sized envelope (A5 sized) can save up to 40% – so remember ‘Small and heavy’ is cheaper than ‘light and large’
Our final tip is that typing the address (on a franked letter) will save 2p on each 2nd class item and 3p on 1st class items.
Typical post charges can be found here, for any other mail related questions please call ext 22368
