Liverpool Central Library, Liverpool


One of the UK’s biggest library development projects delivered through the Government’s PFI programme, to create a modern 21st Century library, with archiving facilities. Work includes restoration of the Grade II listed parts of the building which date back to 1850, including the façade and famous Picton, Hornby and Oak Reading Rooms, which have been restored to their former glory, together with demolition and new build to other areas. The new look library will have a new entrance with ‘literary carpet’, five new floors, a new repository for 20 years of new archive space, conservation studio, rooftop atrium, re-opening of historical internal entrances to the Picton Reading Room and the re-opening of the International Library as a new children’s zone. As well as its role as main contractor, Shepherd also forms part of the Inspire Partnership Consortium.
