Capricorn Secure Library of Birmingham Project!

Posted 01 Aug 11

Capricorn are delighted to have secured this prestigous landmark Birmingham project with Carillion Plc.

The £191m project for Birmingham City Council has been designed by top European architects Mecanoo and is poised to set new standards for libraries in the 21st century, creating an exceptional resource for learning, information, and culture.

Capricorn have been awarded the subcontract package for supplying & installing approximately 200 motorised Verosol Roller Blinds and configuring and commissioning the system to work in conjunction with the overall Building Management System (BMS) using intelligent control systems from Somfy & KNX.

The library won't be open to the public until mid 2013 but Capricorn are due to start early in 2012 to install the system before the suspended ceilings are fitted so they can be concealed when full retracted.
