Static and mobile shelving for Brynmor Jones Library
Ecospace, the specialist library and mobile shelving supplier, has been selected to provide new shelving for the redeveloped library at University of Hull.
Static shelving, including magazine display units, has white shelves and yellow glass end panels creating a striking visual effect. Already installed on the first and first mezzanine floors and floors 3 and 4 of the Library Tower, it is currently being installed on Floors 2, 5, 6 and 7.
In order to provide space to store books from those floors on which the new shelving was being installed, a temporary ‘decant area’ was created. Following design work by Ecospace to determine the amount of storage space required, this has been fitted out with FOREG mobile shelving to create maximum storage capacity. This shelving will, in due course, be dismantled and reinstalled in the basement together with additional mobile shelving and mobile picture racking.
Said Judy Wolff, the Library’s Redevelopment Manager: ‘We are extremely pleased with the quality of the Ecospace product and the company’s performance.’
