Palm Beach State College Library Learning Center

Location: Palm Beach Gardens
Architect: Leo A. Daly
Size: 49,184 SF

Complete building and site-related construction services to remodel 49,184 SF two-story building, which houses facilities for an expanded library, media technology services, computer classroom study areas, general education classrooms, offices, student support services and ancillary functions.

The 49,000 square foot exterior and interior renovation project allows for the building to accommodate an expanded library, media technology services, computer classroom study areas, student support services, offices and the latest in WIFI and wireless technology. The interior renovation included the demolition and reconfiguration of the first and second floors for use as library space. Complete new systems (mechanical, electrical, structural cabling, fire protection, and plumbing) were installed along with state-of-the-art pendant light, metal framing, drywall, ceramic, carpeting, acoustical and casework. 

The major highlight of the renovation was the addition of the monumental stairs and railings. The stairs were designed and constructed of structural steel and the applied finishes were terrazzo treads and risers and stainless steel handrails with glass panel inserts. The exterior renovation included metal framing and stucco for a new window system, painting and landscaping.
