Time for a quick Erne Campus update before the Christmas break! Work on site will cease for a fortnight beginning 20th December giving us all some much needed rest. As you can see, the majority of the scaffolding has been dismantled around the building, revealing the brick cladding and swiss panelling to the carpark facing wall and the glazed front, facing out on to the Erne River.
Internal screens and balcony balustrades are currently being fixed in place along with internal glazing. Below, we can see the student social area really beginning to take shape. This area is joined on to the student services staff area, which is on the other side of the glazed partition

In our last post, we caught a glimpse of how the Fitness Suite is progressing, and this week we can see the sports studio classroom. This room works both as a teaching and physical activity space, with an external dooor, leading to the most northerly point in the campus.

Electrical & Mechanical services are currently being installed on the 3rd floor followed by raised access floor installation. This raised access floor will cover up the services and also provide power and data in the form of floor boxes, allowing many teaching spaces to be flexible and multi purpose.

One of the many open plan offices has its internal metal stud walls constructed, including meeting room and managers office. The one seen below is situtated on the third floor at the most easterly point of the building.

Across the corridor from the open plan office, we have the Erne Campus Boardroom. This room overlooks the atrium and has a panoramic view of much of Enniskillen town.

Internal walls are also almost complete on the 3rd floor, with the catering department starting to take shape including the commercial restaurant and production kitchen.
