Location:

Project Value:

Contract Type:
Tender

This contract involved building a 259m² extension to the existing Highland Park Library. The works comprised of creating a new book returns room, wind lobby, concrete ramp with disability parking, and bicycle stands.

A secure hoarding and temporary fencing were first erected and then the existing entrance slab, doors and shopfront were demolished. A new slab extension was then laid with brickwork walls, and frameless glass entrance doors.

As the library was fully operational throughout the contract, minimising disruption and working closely with staff to keep the public informed, was of upmost importance.
