CBG worked with the University of Warwick on the phased refurbishment of their central campus library.

The building dates from the 1960s, and the facilities had become dated. Each floor was reorganised, with new rolling rack shelving, desks, break-out areas and ICT. CBG worked to develop new M&E services designs to support the layouts, with improved lighting, ventilation and controls. The existing ceiling and slab heights posed a considerable constraint.

The project brief and design was developed to enable a phased refurbishment of the building, with one floor taken out of use during each summer period. The other floors of the library had to remain in use, with disruption to power or ventilation systems kept to defined out of hours periods.
