Library is BREEAM Outstanding

The first library to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, Worcester Library & Historic Centre, with an overall score of 86.4% incorporates an M&E installation completed by Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services. The scheme for The Hive, recently opened by The Queen, has a cooling system using water from the adjacent River Severn and is predominantly naturally ventilated.

The services contract was worth £6 million, and the new building provides over 11 000 m2 of library, research, archive and public space. The overall score is the highest ever for a public library.

Briggs & Forrester has also opened a new office in the north west of England at Daresbury near Warrington. It is headed by regional director Ged Doolan.
