PSBA was hired to study other needs of the Quincy Public Library, such as:

  • Replace the insufficient HVAC System.
  • Bring building access up to ADA Code.
  • Construct adequate, well-lit and accessible parking lots.
  • Provide activity and meeting space.
  • Provide a larger, more secure children’s space.
  • Install a fire suppression system to protect the collection.

PSBA developed designs, leading to construction documents, for the site plan, floor plan, and exterior elevations. We provided budget estimates, on-site construction monitoring, and provided options for HVAC systems. The Renovation Highlights consisted of: 100% more space for Children’s materials and activities; enhanced meeting spaces; the introduction of Teen space; reduction of energy consumption by 50%; 103 new centrally located parking stalls and handicapped accessibility to the library.

Main features of this project were:

  • Construction of a new entrance addition (5,000 sq. ft.) at the southwest corner of the ‘Original’ library. This area contains the circulation desk and acts as a connector between the original library and the library annex building. (The former Great River Library Building.)
  • Renovation to the former Great River Library Building (approximately 10,000 sq ft.)
  • Renovations to 2 floor of the ‘Original’ library building (approximately 36,000 sq ft.)
  • Replacement of HVAC systems for entire complex.
  • Site improvements and parking lot modifications.
