Shepherd Construction, Liverpool Central Library

The Liverpool Central Library and Archive Project is
a unique and prestigious scheme within the heart of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site. The project provides a 8000m2 library and specialist archive and restores 4000m2 of Grade II listed historic buildings on William Brown Street.

Working with Austin Smith Lord Architects and Shepherd Construction since the initial design stage, Azzurro was appointed as sole FF&E contractor.

The scheme comprised in excess of 8,000 linear metres of library shelving, ICT workstations, and seating elements for break-out, staff and visitors. The core library units installed within the library spaces are Schulz Speyer’s Ratio and Uniflex systems which are manufactured in Germany. This system incorporated canopy lighting and lit end panels to good effect. Provision was made to accommodate DVD/CD storage, journal display units, map cabinets, face on book display and bespoke table displays. A large percentage of the shelving is mobile to give the library flexibility in the future.
