Lancaster University is seeking to appoint an Architect to design the refurbishment of the Library and provide a state of the art facility which meets the University strategic international aspirations. The Architect must have prior experience of refurbishing large libraries and demonstrate a strong understanding of library systems and service delivery, navigating book collections, library technologies, flexible learning spaces and library furniture (mobile shelving, appropriate seating/desking etc).
The Library constitutes 14 500 m2 of space which is comprised of the original 1967 building with an extension which was built in 1996. The building is to be refurbished floor by floor to enable the building to remain operational throughout the work. The refurbishment will commence on site in summer 2013 and it is estimated that with a phased approach it will take up to 5 years to complete with an estimated construction cost of 7 000 000 GBP.
