Making Contact: Latest News Find out more

If you haven't been past our building on Oxford Road recently, here is the latest news from the Contact building site!

Things are really starting to ramp up on site!

The roof lining has gone onto the new extension and if you’ve been past the Contact site you will have noticed that the external and internal partitions are being installed. At the moment it may look like we’re going to have a purple building, but this won’t be visible once the external layer is on.

We are also delighted to share that the new roof lights have been finished which will sit at the top of our new staircase up to the second floor. We’re really happy with how much natural light this brings into the space, it also gives a good view up to the chimneys. The preparations for the steel work for our new feature staircase are ongoing and we’re really looking forward to the improvements this will make in our building, connecting the first and second floors.

The first electrical works are happening across the building and once this critical infrastructure is in place the theatre sound and lighting installation will be ready to start.

There are some images below, including some great drone footage from above and some from a recent staff visit to the site.

We’ll keep you up to date as work continues!
