Mercantile House refurbishment – update on temporary moves

20170726_093535Phase 2 of the Mercantile House refurbishment programme includes staff moving to floors 3 and 4 whilst windows are replaced. This schedule of activity has been discussed and agreed with all impacted departments through the heads of department, to avoid disruption during busy periods. Staff in Marketing and Communications, Estates and Campus Services and DCQE will temporarily move to either floor 3 or 4 for two weeks.

To minimise the impact on training and the use of the prayer room, window replacements will take place over two weeks for these locations:

  • DCQE training rooms, floor 1 – out of hours from 23 October 2017
  • Prayer room, floor 0 – closed between 7am and 6pm from 23 October 2017

Estates and Campus Services will work with Kier Construction to manage the temporary moves and IS will be on hand to support as required. Please see below the move schedule.
