Document Description
This project will renovate the existing four-story (91,000 gsf) portion of the library. This combined space will accommodate the master plan enrollment of 25,000 fte. The addition will consist of a four-story structure above grade with a one-story basement. The exterior skin will be comprised of pre-cast concrete over a structural steel frame system. The new and existing structures will be connected on the first floor by an existing atrium walkway and on the second floor by a bridge. The project will incorporate several sustainable features, including building orientation, extensive use of recycled materials, the use of day-lighting with an emphasis on natural light from the north, a focused effort to use and specify local building materials and water conservation technologies. The majority of the library collection will be housed in the basement utilizing high density compact shelving, freeing up the upper floors for open stacks, reader stations, technical and public areas, and media storage. The addition will also provide space for circulation, government documents, reference and map libraries, periodicals, information competency centers, collaborative learning areas, juvenile curricula, and the music library. Additionally it will include administrative space to alleviate the campus space shortage. The renovated facility will accommodate the non-reference functions of the library administration and the special collections so that it may be shut down during later operating hours.
