  • Provision of 3 new turnstiles at the entrance. After the project was completed, there were 4 entry gates and 2 exit gates.
  • Provision of 4 new group study areas to the south of the ground floor area, with whiteboards and 32 inch LCD screens to allow flexibility of use and presentations.
  • Removal of the existing IS Helpdesk and provision of a new IS Helpdesk and a new Library enquiry desk.
  • Reconfiguration of the photocopier area with integration of 2 new seated E-Journals terminals and 5 new seated library catalogues adjacent to the enquiry desk.
