WORK is well underway on the redevelopment of Globe House in Alcester.
The project to bring the library, the Roman Museum, and various council services under the one roof has now reached the half way point.
Coun Mike Gittus said: “The building will span a wide range of services from one place and I am pleased we have been able to improve and safeguard this cornerstone of the local community.
“As well as offering local people a more convenient, joined-up facility Globe House is making public money work more efficiently. Rather than two public buildings being maintained just a few hundred yards from each other, we are bringing an excellent range of services together.”
Over the past two months old offices have been stripped out, internal structural work has taken place and the building has been rewired. The next phase of the project will see replacement ceilings, floors, electrics and new data systems installed.
David Moulson of Alcester Roman Museum added: “We are delighted to be working with the library and town council to offer enhanced learning, cultural and heritage opportunities for the benefit of local people and to attract more visitors to the town through a new and exciting programme of events.”
The new look Globe House is expected to open in the Spring.
