The team at Oxford Archaeology have been involved from the early stages of this project to ensure that important archaeological evidence is thoroughly excavated, recorded and reported on.
This video shows the progress of the demolition of the Cumberbatch Building between August and October. Going at breakneck speed, it shows just how much has been achieved in just a few months.
The installation of the new temporary Lawn Pavilion involved closing off sections of Parks Road overnight and craning the building parts over the Stuart Gates. The new building will be in situ for three years.
The first significant preparatory works for the Levine Building began with the felling of a number of trees in the Wilderness to enable access and construction.
