Library Infrastructure Upgrade
Design and Construction Dates: Upon approval of Board of Regents
Library is currently under
renovation. With the completion of this renovation, Library will regain
nearly 400 seats for students and 17,000 square feet of space for library
functions. With the increase of occupancy load, electrical and HVAC systems
will require upgrade. Air handlers need to be replaced due to the end of their life expectancy. Building envelope containing (curtain
wall system), windows, ceilings, etc., are in the scope for the project as well.
With the project implementation, air quality in the building will improve.
Replacement of air handlers that are at the end of their life expectancy
with newer more energy efficient models and upgrade of the electrical
system will contribute to energy conservation. Due to reconfiguration of
existing space and the fact that the Library will regain its original
construction square footage, 700 students will be served at the Library at
