PALACE GREEN LIBRARY

Contract Name: Palace Green Library Phases 2A – 2D
Value: Combined £1.15 million
Duration of Works: 4 Phases from Aug 11 – June 14
Completed: June 14
Description of Works: Full electrical refurbishment to listed building library over 4 areas/phases
The building that is known as Palace Green Library is in fact a group of buildings and various extensions that date back to the 15th century and today they form the basis of Durham University’s special collections libraries and archives located on the Durham World Heritage Site.
In recent years the building has been updated and McVickers are proud to have been involved in 6 of the 7 phases of that refurbishment.
The electrical installation had to be installed in a way that was sympathetic to the building to minimise any damage, all cable routes, drilling of holes and final locations had to be agreed with planning prior to works commencing.
The result of this planning has finally paid off and the building has now been restored to a very high standard while still keeping its historic identity.
Works are currently underway to complete the final phase of this project.
