  • BOURNEMOUTH LIBRARY WINS PRIME MINISTER’S BETTER PUBLIC BUILDING AWARD

    Monday, November 24, 2003

    Bournemouth Library, which features large spans of Technal’s specially adapted MC curtain walling, has won the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award.

    Designed by BDP, the new development replaced a library, which was said to be the second worst in England.  The new £10m PFI scheme forms a key part of the regeneration of the Triangle area of Bournemouth.  Since it opened, the library has seen a threefold increase in visitor numbers, with more than 3,500 people visiting during its first Saturday of operation.
