Designed and developed integrated tabletops using Colour Core laminate with colour throughout

Used BCI shelving, some with lockable sliding doors, in a slip-resistant matt finish

Incorporated GPS technology to exactly pinpoint the position of each shelving bay in a circular layout

Designed and installed sleek, white Wilsonart end panels to give a crisp finish to the shelving

Designed bespoke curved shelving in bright orange for the children’s library

Supplied unusual kinderboxes to create an interesting children’s area

The outcome

A library which is a testament to the expertise of the Demco project management team, the creativity of the Demco designers to interpret a challenging brief in conjunction with the architects. The whole-hearted commitment of everyone involved with the project – the library team, architects, designers, developers and Demco in creating an outstanding facility.
