The awards shortlistings for us seem to be coming in thick and fast of late, but we’re very pleased to share the news with you that our careful refurbishment of the Edward Boyle Library for the University of Leeds has been shortlisted for an AJ RetroFit award this year.
The Library is a Grade II Listed modernist building forms part of a wider group of buildings modeled by Chamberlin Powell & Bon in the 1960’s and 70’s.
Our comprehensive refurbishment upgrades building performance achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating as well as implementing a dedicated Post Graduate Research Suite, an additional 200 reader spaces and a public cafe.
To assist in securing planning permission for the library refurbishment works we liaised directly with the sole remaining partner of Chamberlin Powell & Bon and compiled a comprehensive Statement of Heritage Significance.
The awards be announced at the ceremony held at The Brewery, London on the 13th September 2017.
