Construction of the Docklands Library and Community Centre at Victoria Harbour is progressing, with the framework of the first floor now clearly visible.

The $13 million library is being delivered through a partnership between Lend Lease, Places Victoria and City of Melbourne and is one of the key elements of the Docklands Community and Place Plan.

The three-storey library is being constructed using cross-laminated timber (CLT) and reclaimed hardwood. According to a Lend Lease spokesperson, the development is progressing well despite inclement weather.

The spokesperson said installation of the CLT was well underway, with both lift cores now completed.

The spokesperson said work on the level one columns, beams and suspended floors was also underway.

According to the spokesperson, the next step in the library’s construction is installation of electrical, mechanical and hydraulic services at level one.

Construction of the Docklands Library and Community Centre is due for completion in late 2013 and is set to open to the public in March 2014.
