Museum taking shape despite delays
14 December 2021
Despite delays caused by a redesign of the foundation, and the Covid-19 lockdown and associated supply issues progress continues to be made on the Carnegie building. The work is running about 40 days behind schedule but contractors expect to hand the building back by the end of March 2022.
The structural steel wall columns and roof diaphragm were scheduled to be completed at the beginning of December. This is an important step in providing earthquake strengthening and support to the building. With the completion of the steelwork, new wall framing and ceiling installation will begin. A new environmental control system (HVAC) is being manufactured offsite and will be installed in January 2022.
