Building for the future
Progress on our new storage building in Boston Spa is on schedule. The main contractor, Allenbuild North East Ltd., will complete the superstructure in autumn 2007. FKI Logistex will then install the 21 metre high racking and the fully-automated storage and retrieval system.
The low-oxygen, high-density unit will be the largest and most technologically advanced library facility in the world, providing 260km of storage for some seven million items. The building will ensure that more of our collection is stored in compliance with the rigorous national standard for archiving documents, BS5454:2000.
