Remedial work Fife Park buildings: Cathedral, Chariots, Muchross, Kilrule, Riggs and Monaid

As a defect has been discovered in the design of the above shower rooms, small leaks under shower trays, the University is working with a contractor to rectify these defects.  While it doesn't affect the working order of the showers, remedial works will have to be carried out.  The work will take 2 weeks per flat and there will be a level of noise disruption.  The timing of the works and further details will be communicated to the occupants of the flat in advance.
