Gravesend Library

Gravesend Library

At Weld of Fabrications, we have been lucky enough to be involved in a wide variety of projects and were proud to be asked to help with the refurbishment of Gravesend library.

Internally we added structural beams and supports to allow the new more open plan interior, but the interesting work came on the outside of the building, where we fabricated and installed a fascia using a specialist weathering steel (often called Corten).

This weathering steel is used a lot in sculptures as it has an increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion, meaning it has a weathered appearance, but once the 'rust' has formed it acts as a protective layer for the steel beneath.
