The University of Birmingham Library

The University of Birmingham library involved various complex internal fit out packages (Drywall, Ceilings, Flooring & Joinery) delivered in one overall fit out package.

Main Contractor:



University of Birmingham



Package Value:




Most notable installations were, a series of complexed internal aluminium metal wall panels, totalling over 2700m2 over four floors, with the stand out being the main staircase which stretched throughout the main atrium and was wrapped in anodised gold panels, many of which were bespoke sizes. In addition, there were over 1500m2 of SAS system 150 ceilings, 400m2 of Gustaf ceiling panels, and a series of bespoke rectangular and circular baffles and suspended rafts throughout the whole project. 

Horbury joinery installed over 250 door sets which incorporated a recessed bead detail to every opening. Stainless steel skirting, kitchen and tea point installations formed part of their various activities on site.

Titan flooring’s package involved the fitting of vinyl, mat wells, and a variety of complexed carpet tile patterns.

The project reflected the close working relationship in existence between Horbury Group and Carillion, where yet another successful project was delivered on time and defect free.
