£40 million of PFI credits were secured for a unique project which combines a new city and academic library for the University of Worcester with an historic/archaeological archive and a Council hub. The site for the project lies in a prominent position between the town centre and the race course and is also in a conservation area.

FaulknerBrowns Architects acted as Technical Advisor to the Council and produced a detailed design statement - a document which documented the Council's aspiration for the project from an architectural and organisational position. The Design Statement set down the key urban design rules, internal management strategies, internal linkages between function to guide the bidding designers and also to give a benchmark for the joint project team to judge the quality of the bidder selection.
