The works involved at the Balwyn Library Redevelopment site included an extension and refurbishment of the existing Balwyn Library building.

Within these works was the addition of an atrium, construction of a first floor level comprising mainly staff areas / offices, as well as demolition and reconstruction / refurbishment of lobby, study, meeting and amenity areas on the ground floor.

Interesting features of the project included a roof cooling system supplied by new rainwater tanks, a green roof at first floor level above the library area below, make good of all external timber shading and reinstatement of the existing library’s timber ceiling lining.

The project was completed in March 2018.
