Firm chosen for landmark project

Worcester Library and History Centre
The centre is thought to be the first of its kind in the UK

Construction company Galliford Try has been signed up to build the £60m Worcester Library and History Centre.

The centre is thought to be the first of its kind in the UK, integrating a university library with a public one.

The centre, in The Butts, will include learning and heritage facilities, and will be open to all members of the public.

Construction work is due to start in September and should be completed by January 2012.

The library is a joint operation between Worcestershire County Council and the University of Worcester.
