BUILDING THE FUTURE OF THE ARCHIVES – AN UPDATE by Ruth Imeson

Works on the project to extend the storage block, construct an additional events room and refurbish the public areas is well underway and on schedule for completion at the end of March 2015. During the past few months the project team has encountered a number of inevitable snags, although none have proven to be insurmountable.

The brickwork for the extended storage areas has almost reached the first floor. Morgan Sindall, our lead contractor, is performing the ground works necessary to establish the foundations for the events and plant room.

As part of the Heritage Open Day, on Saturday 13 September, we’ll be saying a fond farewell to the building, prior to its closure to the public. Please note that usual Saturday opening hours will be suspended and no original documents will be produced on 13 September.

The service will be closed to the public from Saturday 18 October until the end of January 2015.

We will re-open with a newly refurbished search room incorporating greater computer access along with updated procedures. The archive consultation area will increase in size and be moved to the opposite side of the search room. New lighting and furnishings will create a more welcoming atmosphere.

 


Visit Nottinghamshire Archives and tour around the building, see behind the scenes, see displays of archives and have a go at activities.

There is no need to book in advance for this event
