Library at the Dock
As the first 6 Star Green Star public building and the first to be constructed of CLT (Cross Laminated Timber), The Library at the Dock is testament to what can be achieved by pushing the boundaries of modern sustainable design. Paying homage to Dockland’s rich maritime heritage with reclaimed hardwood from the waterfront, the Library offers much more to its visitors than just borrows and returns.
