Ross Waugh blogs about the Timaru Library and how they successfully managed to cut short the 30-week planned repairs, renovations and upgrades to 8 weeks.
After more than 40 years, the Timaru Library got its much-needed repair and renovation through the funding that the Timaru District Council budgeted in 2019.
The repair works include the following: roof waterproofing, insulation, ceiling, carpets, paintwork, heating, and energy-efficient lighting.
How the Timaru District Council, together with the Timaru Library management, implemented successfully the planned renovations is what Ross Waugh presented in the video.
On 26th March, when New Zealand was on lert Level 4, the highest level with the strictest lock down measures, Ross published the article, “COVID-19 Carpe Diem Strategy – Libraries” where he talked about how the lockdowns “provide an opportunity to catch up on operations, streamlining processes, updating systems as necessary and undertaking any major maintenance or capital expenditure if it is likely to have been disruptive to the facility.”
Watch the video and know what the Timaru Library did to take advantage of the disruption that the pandemic caused.
Waugh Infrastructure Management appreciates the successful repair and rehabilitation project that the Timaru District Council and the Timaru Library implemented.
Thanks to Adele Hewlett, Timaru District Council Libraries Manager for allowing Ross and his team to shoot this video blog.
