Liverpool Central Library beats The Shard in LABC Awards
Liverpool Central Library is the winner of Best Technical Innovation award.
The challenge the project team faced was the difficulty of marrying the new build extension to the existing grade 2 listed building of 1850. This threw up competing technical issues around access, fire safety and preservation of the historic facade.
Close working relationships were developed to find solutions to the various problems thrown up by the constraints and various specialist consultants were employed to deal with issues such as fire safety and disabled access requirements.
