Detroit Public Library - South Wing Renovation

Owner: Detroit Public Library
Project Cost: $1.3M
Completed: January 2011

The Detroit Public Library Construction Project at 5201 Woodward Avenue involved renovations to the first and second levels of the Main Branch South Wing totaling 33,554 square feet of space. This renovation included all new ceilings, light fixtures, flooring, wall paneling, furniture, two fireplaces and restoration of existing wood paneling and book casings. The completed renovation achieved the goal of transforming large open spaces that were once filled with outdated tables and chairs into flexible study and social areas with modern, ergonomic furnishings. With the use of modern techniques in engineering and architecture along with proficient construction management, the South Wing Renovation was completed in a timely manner and within the project’s budget.
The Detroit Public Library South Wing Renovation demonstrates expertise in the technical aspects of design and construction, along with resourceful and creative problem-solving, that will provide the citizens of Detroit with functional and enjoyable work, study and socializing areas for years to come.
