New and old come together at precious archive
The Keep a new £19m historical resource centre in East Sussex has a different decorative flake resin floor finish, from Ryebrook Resins, for each of the three storage floors
The Keep is a new £19m historical resource centre in Falmer, East Sussex, housing over six miles of archives and resources dating back 900 years, which was officially opened by HM the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. Built by Kier Construction, The Keep is a major partnership project between East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Sussex and combines state-of-the-art storage for archives with excellent visitor facilities. Over the past few months curators have been moving and installing thousands of items from the city and East Sussex, including around 350,000 items from the Royal Pavilion and Museums and archives from the University of Sussex which include the Mass Observation and Kipling Archives. Items moving from Brighton History Centre include local history ephemera, photographs, glass plate negatives and lantern slides, oral history recordings and topographical prints, newspapers, microfilms, and some rare books. Ryebrook Resins epoxy resin seamless decorative flake floor finish was specified for each of the three storage floors. Each floor was laid in a different colour to indicate the separate storage areas. The decorative epoxy resin system was used as it provides a durable, dust free, anti-slip surface that is easy to clean.
