Work to install a new Heating Exchange in the IALS building will be starting this month. The Institute and its Library will be open as normal during this work. The new Heating Exchange will give IALS some ability to control the heating coming in to the building from the central boiler at SOAS and therefore give us more control over the temperature.
As a first step the hot water system will be shut down for a week from Saturday 5th August 2017. It will be re-connected on Monday 14th August 2017. Water will still flow through the hot taps but it will not be hot.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this essential improvement work. The contractors will be aiming to keep the noisiest work to a minimum.
