Diamond Special Works has completed the refurbishment of Alexandra Park Library in London on behalf of Haringey Council.
The project involved external and internal works to improve the building’s facilities and appearance, and to provide more space for the library’s visitors.
New partitions have been installed to adapt the layout, and a lift installed to the first floor, following structural alterations to the existing staircase. The library also benefits from new carpets, decoration and furniture as well as upgraded IT infrastructure.
Externally, Diamond Special Works has replaced the roof and windows, improving aesthetics and making the building more thermally efficient.
David Lott, Senior Contracts Manager, said: “Our specialist experience of refurbishing public buildings has enabled this refurbishment to be delivered quickly and efficiently. The Council’s investment in Alexandra Park library has significantly enhanced the environment and facilities for both the public and staff.”
The project adds to the recent upgrade of Wood Green Library, also delivered by Diamond Special Works for Haringey Council. Here, the team revamped office space, and provided new joinery, decoration, partitions and ceilings on the third floor. A mechanical and electrical package was also installed. All the work was delivered while the library remained open to the public.
