Historical building (c. 1908)

Every mechanical item in this building was completely demolished and replaced with new electrical, plumbing, HVAC and state-of-the-art audio/visual systems.

Most existing finishes including wood, trim, doors, and original paint colors were restored to their original condition while upgrading them to the latest ADA hardware requirements.

Renovation of the older building was completed while the building’s library area, located on the top floor, remained occupied and completely functional at all times.

Extensive site work included a limestone and brick arcade wall which integrated stainless steel bulletin boards and a LED display case
