Above - New acoustic insulation being installed in Foundry.
A new lift is being installed and the work to install miles and miles of cabling needed to keep us connected has now been completed. Furniture is on order with the main fit-out currently taking place by contractors. A guide to employees who will be using Foundry is also being prepared that will cover areas such as car parking; canteen facilities; opening times and how the building will operate. Due to global issues with the supply of construction materials, the timeline for moves has changed from late September/October and is now likely to be mid-November.
Work to clear Municipal Buildings continues to take place on a floor by floor basis. Elected members are now re-located to Abbotsford House with committee meetings taking place in Falkirk Town Hall.
Old furniture is being reused (mainly by schools) and some items are still available.
Work on actual demolition (subject to permission) will start in November on a phased basis with Westbank clinic, the district court and committee suite tackled first.
