Jersey Archive

 

AC Mauger Construction are currently working on the £3.5 million project at Jersey Archive which will see the award-winning building double its capacity size, providing more storage for important paper and digital records for approximately twenty-five years.

The Assistant Minister with responsibility for Culture, Deputy Murray Norton, described the project as an important investment for the people of Jersey. He said “Records management is a statutory responsibility for good reason – these documents provide material for future historians to interpret how we lived, loved and died, and they show the important legal and financial decisions our society made in the course of that journey.

“Creating more space at Jersey Archive is desperately needed if we are to tell our Island story effectively to future generations.”

The extension project will follow a new scheme drawn up by BDK Architects and Metropolitan Workshop, who built the original archive on the former site of the Clarence Court housing estate.

The extension will be similarly innovative, making use of the most up-to-date building materials. The construction process requires specialist techniques to ensure that it is moisture-free and suitable for records storage. AC Mauger, working with Jersey Property Holdings, are following a process of rigorous checks and many complex build methods to minimise moisture in the build process. This includes installing concrete sensors into the build to monitor the drying out process.

To meet national archive standards, it will have to dry out for six to nine months before it is ready for occupation in 2020.
