LABC South West Regional Building Excellence Award 2012 – Shortlisted
Procured as a design and build contract, with the design team novated to the preferred contractor. AWW originally designed and received planning permission to develop a mixed Health Centre and Library for Plympton near Plymouth after the previous library was destroyed in a devastating fire in 2008. Following uncertainty within the NHS and local Primary Care Trust, the library was pursued as a stand alone building. The single storey building utilises large expanses of glazing to provide an active facade and an open plan voluminous space within.
