The Library of Birmingham is a public library situated on the west side of the City Centre at Centenary Square
Birmingham City Council
The Library of Birmingham took more than three years and cost £212m to build.
Designed by architect Francine Houben, it is the biggest library in Europe and supports the life-long learning and skills development for Birmingham citizens and local businesses.
The project in the city’s Centenary Square has created a blueprint for how to integrate benefits to Birmingham’s most hard-hit residents: the homeless, the young and the unemployed.
F3g was given the joint role of specialist move manager.
The mammoth task required the transfer of over:
5m books and
24 kilometres of shelving, including precious archive collections
The library now attracts and accommodates more than three million visitors a year.
