Enfield Town Library
The redevelopment of Enfield Town Library will address the full range of requirements for 'Framework for the Future', the Government's 10 year strategy for public libraries through the creation of a library which is friendly, accessible and welcoming to everyone, and which fosters a sense of local identity and pride.
The original existing building (completed in 1912) will be retained and restored. The later extensions have already been demolished and will be replaced with a distinctive contemporary new two-storey extension providing a new entrance from the Library Green. The Green itself will be enhanced as a public amenity by landscape works including new paths, planting and features.
The scheme includes a ground source heat recovery system and it is anticipated that the building will obtain a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of 'excellent'.
Construction work started in January 2009 and the proposed opening date for the new facility is Spring 2010.
