Clothworkers South: Noise Disruption

Refurbishment works are continuing within the Clothworkers South building as part of the 3D Weaving Innovation Centre project. The works have been extended beyond the original completion dates due to additional asbestos removal works having to be carried out in the buildings below ground duct zones. The duct zones required clearance to allow for the buildings services to be connected and completed.


We are aware that the ongoing works are creating some issues in terms of noise disruption. To minimize the impact of the ongoing works we are implementing the following measures:

  • Works onsite commencing at 6.00am to carry out the most intrusive and prolonged noisy work, prior to commencement of teaching
  • Teaching timetables have been provided to the project team so that other ongoing works can be targeted around scheduled teaching periods
  • All operatives onsite are undergoing tool box talks by William Birch to raise awareness of the impact their refurbishment activities can have on the occupants of Clothworkers South, and the need for them to work considerately.


Please see below, floor plans of the building, depicting where works are still ongoing and showing current forecasted completion dates.

We are continuing to work closely with the occupants of Clothworkers to complete the works as speedily as possible, whilst also being mindful of the buildings day-to-day activities.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
