Social hub

The New George Green Library at the Nottingham University Campus was recently extended and refurbished with a new curtain wall facade supplied by Aluprof UK.

Designed by Hopkins Architects the existing library with low ceiling heights has been extended to form a new Social Hub for students. Aluprof’s MB-SR50N Efekt curtain wall system was specified for the project which ensured that there was no horizontal capping visible and that the vertical capping’s were emphasised.

These deep capping’s were cut between floors at 45º to offer an aesthetically pleasing facade around the complete building, which has alsoachieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.

The £20.5 million refurbished library offers space for 8,000 linear metres of books and periodicals, has taken almost three years to complete and was officially opened by Prince Andrew on March 17, 2017.
