Harry Fairclough is delighted to announce that the Clifford Whitworth Library project for the University of Salford was awarded the ‘outstanding project/innovation of the year at the University’s Vice-Chancellor’s Award Ceremony, 14 June 2018.

The prestigious awards are only presented to the highest performing sites and projects, delivered by the University across the year. The Harry Fairclough site team worked closely with the library project team to complete the phased project that involved three stages of works over an 18-month period to fully re-model the internal space of the library. The end result is an engaging and innovative ‘library in the park’ concept, featuring deck chairs, grass inspired flooring and interactive learning zones.

Chris Mellor, Project Manager at Harry Fairclough comments: “Working with the University of Salford is exciting for our team as their focus is always firmly on creating world class, pioneering teaching facilities. We are delighted that the library project has been recognised as outstanding. It was a pleasure to work with the project team to deliver the transformation, whilst ensuring that students were still always able to access the building that never sleeps! The Clifford Whitworth Library is now a bright, fresh, technology enabled space that offers students an inspiring, future-fit and flexible learning environment.”

Harry Fairclough has worked with the University of Salford since 2010 and other recent projects include the construction of the state-of-the-art Cockcroft Megalab, a world-class teaching facility equipped with the latest technologies, specially designed to promote an excellent student teaching experience.
