    the design and a further four years to build In view of the valuable book contents of the building the structural interior was constructed mainly of stone minimizing the use of timber to reduce the fire risk The engineering consultant employed was Charles Hopkinson who incorporated several new ideas into the design of the engineering services The building was one of the first public buildings in Manchester to have electric lighting and originally generated its own electricity from three gas engines The electrical distribution was run in gun metal or bronze conduits dependant upon their location Where it was necessary to run cables on the surface they were encased in trunking made of coinage metal with gun metal fixing screws The covers had to be made with ornamental finish to blend with the adjacent wood paneling The electrical switches resemble gas taps and those in the main Library were set in large bronze plates finished with an ornamental scroll Mechanical heating and ventilation was designed into the building structure allowing the fresh air to be filtered and tempered first before its distribution around the building The ventilation system was one of the first to have two air ducts hot and
