Happenings @ Berkeley Castle

Construction has Begun in the Lobby of 250 The Esplanade

The construction to upgrade the entrance and lobby of 250 The Esplanade has begun. The objective of the renovation is to meet current day accessibility requirements and make after hours access easier and more secure.

The upgrade involves widening the entrance doorway, installing new double doors and grading the outside walkway area.  Along with the new doors, a new key fob entry system will be installed.

The construction will affect only the Lobby at 250 The Esplanade, (not the Main Lobby at 2 Berkeley Street).  The access to that lobby will be limited or inaccessible for the duration of the construction.  During these periods, access from outside will be via the stairwell door located by the East Gate.  If you, any of your staff, or guests have mobility issues, that makes climbing stairs difficult, please let us know as soon as possible.  We have made alternate arrangements for access, but you, your staff or guest will need to be accompanied by one of our staff.

The entire project is expected to be completed by mid-March 2020. There is directional signage at the West Gate and in the courtyard to direct people to the East Gate.  The elevator will be available between the 2nd and 5th floors.  Couriers should be notified of the alternate entrance.
