Room for everybody and everything!
With the gib now on the office walls it's easy to imagine lots of community groups using the fabulous meeting spaces Te Takere will offer. The biggest meeting room, which will be able to be split into two with a folding dividing wall will be perfect for our library programmes as well as for meetings held by other local organisations. And the two other rooms will be great for smaller groups. All rooms are sound insulated so holiday programmes and class visits should be almost un-noticed by library users unless they choose to watch through the big glass windows.
The ceiling is almost completed and it looks really good. I love the way the steel beams have been boxed up with timber. They look so much more elegant than cold steel beams would and they contrast beautifully with the ceiling material.
The supports for the verandah roof are going up fast. Won't it be great to have a non leaky cover over the front of the building!
This week the plan is to begin installing the air conditioning ducting. In a space this big it will be essential for everyone's comfort.
