June 2019 – Project Update

Welcome to our project news for June 2019 

Roof scaffold changes – The eagle eyed of you may have noticed that the scaffolding structure on the roof of the Ducal Palace has changed somewhat over the last month. This is due to the completion of works on the north side of the roof and the commencement of works on the south, and the subsequent movement of the temporary roof to accommodate this change of location. We have all marvelled at the scale and complexity of this temporary structure, created to weatherproof the exposed areas while works take place.

French student site visit – We were happy to welcome some French students to site earlier this month. A group of construction students from Paris had contacted us asking to use the Castle as a case study during their trip to the UK. As part of our Build It project, we are committed to promoting careers in the construction industry and were therefore happy to help. It was great to see such an enthusiastic group, who were obviously impressed by the scale and detail of the site. We wish them good luck in their studies and their future careers in construction.

Media day – We had a very busy day on 7 June when we invited local media on to site for a progress update. Journalists from East Midlands Today, the Nottingham Post and Notts TV were in attendance and spent some time exploring the site and filming highlights to share with the public. We hope you managed to catch some of the footage. If not, not to worry as we will schedule more Media Days throughout the project in the run up to re-opening.
