Preliminary and preparatory works at the old Marrickville Hospital site will commence in the first week of August.
These works, which include the demolition of two dilapidated non-heritage buildings (the old surgical theatre and boiler room), the removal of hazardous materials, and improved fencing and securing of the site, are a clear demonstration of Council’s strong commitment to the construction of a new iconic library on this site.
The work will be managed by Council’s Major Projects team with expert assistance from the successful tenderer.
Following extensive community feedback, Marrickville Council staff are currently reviewing design and funding options for the New Marrickville Library to identify potential cost savings, while still maintaining the vision for the Library that was developed in consultation with the Marrickville community.
