Fairport Public Library
Complete renovation of a 24,000SF leased facility in the Fairport Village Landing. All spaces were reconfigured to improve circulation and transform the 1970's aesthetics into a 21st Century Public Library. Sight lines to the outside were improved to eliminate the perception that the Library is located in a basement. All spaces were provided with climate control via high efficiency rooftop units and easy access to the intranet.
The biggest challenge during design was to provide the owner with a high quality Public Library facility with a fixed project budget. Difficult decisions were put in front of the owner during the value engineering phase and M/E assisted with the decision making by providing the pros/cons for each measure.
