PROJECT: Thorington School Library
PARTNER: Ross Maguire Architects
This new building is a large school library, complete with librarian’s workroom and a teaching space that can close off from the main library. It is an innovative design, and the main challenge for Corbel Construction was to produce the highest standard of workmanship on the finishing details, as stipulated by the architect. The builders’ careful attention and genuine desire to get it right has resulted in a spacious and modern building, with attractive finishing details that make it a unique place for learning and relaxing. The joinery was produced by our own in-house joinery factory and the timber veneer and curved surfaces made it a real feature of the library. The whole school attending the opening was a great wrap-up to the project.
