Ingleton Wood were appointed to provide multi-disciplinary design, procurement, contract administration and CDM services for the refurbishment of a retail property into a new library and ‘youth connexions facility’ in Harpenden.
The refurbishment comprised:
The long, narrow building has high ceilings on the ground floor and low ceilings on the first floor. Creative zoning of space and use of different ceiling heights, wall finishes and additional natural daylight creates visual interest and balances the space.
The property is located directly on the main high street, with little frontage and a shared service road to the rear, which presented challenges. We were to avoid disrupting neighbouring units during the scheme. Works required Party Wall agreements with the adjoining property, and planning consent for the new shop front.
The works were delivered and completed within the 12 week programme.
