Our refurbishment of the Grade II modernist concrete Edward Boyle Library at the University of Leeds has been shortlisted for 3 awards at the 2017 Constructing Excellence Awards; namely
- Project of the Year
- Integration and Collaborative Working
- Preservation and Rejuvenation
The sensitive refurbishment sees the focus on post-graduate student requirements introducing a research suite, consolidation of book collections increasing reader spaces, a new public cafe and the opening up of the ground and first floors flooding the building with light. We’ve made significant improvements to the the library’s energy requirements through installing secondary glazing and internally applied insulation. So far, feedback from the university and their students has been extremely positive and we are very proud of the project.
We’re delighted with the shortlisting announcement and look forward to the awards ceremony on the 7th July in Leeds.
