Christ’s College Cambridge Library
Following on from the successful previous phase, 3 Dimensions were asked to complete the final two bays of insulation beneath the existing rooflights & insulating the main library ceiling.
We worked with Millworks Timber, a local specialist timber merchants, to source suitable timber species and profile similar to the existing installation. Due to limited stock of some wood species during lockdown Western Hemlock was recommended with MW-2 shadowgap profile.
Our labour installed approximately 2000 individually cut slats between the existing timber joists, maintaining the line along the length of the Library whilst working around the existing tie beams and angles support timbers.
The new timber slats were finally treated with a Thermoguard Fire Protection Coating to achieve BS EN Class B s2 d0.
Existing fluorescent light fittings were upgraded to LED.
