Worcester Library – ‘The Hive’

ABOUT THE BUILDING

The Hive is a fully integrated public and university library that includes specialist provision for children, young people and business users. The library includes the county record office’s archives and history centre, the county’s archaeology service and a multi-agency customer service in partnership with the City Council.

Sustainability has truly been the key driver throughout the design and construction process – getting a high BREEAM rating and certification was the best method of demonstrating and recognising this commitment.
