Wheeling, IL

project

The initial phase of the project was to perform a master plan study and building assessment to understand the current condition of both the infrastructure and the function of the existing Library. Through collaboration with staff and administration, a building program was developed that represents the future needs and direction of the Library. Product Architecture + Design then developed plans and cost models for various levels of renovation and additions for review by the board of trustees. Ultimately, a combination of projects c & d were selected representing a full building renovation and along with a new 15,000 SF/2 level addition.

project 2:

Full Interior Renovation and Building Addition:
The building renovation project at the Library is currently under construction. The finished project will include a new divisible large meeting rooms, 8 study rooms, a training lab, maker space and an ESL classroom along with lots of open seating and areas to lounge. The existing site was also redesigned to fix a non-functioning traffic flow while adding a new vehicular book drop off and  pedestrian plaza. 

Sustainablility: 
Completed sustainable initiatives in the project include a new HVAC system with geothermal loop, replacement of all light fixtures with LED, and electric solar panels. The proposed energy reductions over the current usage at the Library illustrate a benchmark in community leadership and dedication to the health of the planet..
