Iconic Manchester Central Library refurbished
Manchester’s iconic, 1930s, Central Library building has beautiful new floors, stairs and ramped areas as part of major a refurbishment.
Specialist resin systems supplier Resin Surfaces Limited (RSL) was brought in to help with the multi-million pound refurbishment of Manchester’s Central Library. The Library recently re-opened to enthusiastic reviews following a three-year refurbishment. RSL’s brief was to provide a modern flooring solution that complemented the Library’s unique neo-classical style. First opened in 1934, the Grade II* – listed building is Britain’s second-largest public library and an important tourist attraction in the city. The re-opening of the Library is part of Manchester City Council’s drive to deliver first class, accessible services and follows the unveiling of the refurbished Town Hall Extension in July of last year. Public entrances have been restored to their 1930s appearance and new staircases and lift shafts inserted to improve access throughout the Central Library. Stockport-based RSL supplied bespoke flooring systems that capture the beauty of the environment and complement its ornate design. FeRFA Contractor, Ancorite Surface Protection ltd used R.S Terrazzo and R.S Terrain with R.S Beadgrip for the floor, stairs and ramped areas of the building to provide beautiful yet functional flooring to copy with the amount of foot traffic expected through the building.
