Challenges

This project had a very tight programme and turnaround which was compounded by the design due to the curved construction required. This was overcome by having the right skill base and expertise on site, as well as supervision. ​

Results

The Council and those working at the Library were very pleased with the results with the Library being opened by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.​
