A LEED Gold comprehensive renovation and transformation of then called Langsdale Library, built in 1965, addressed space deficiencies, remedied code related and MEP system deficiencies, improved the building’s energy efficiency and sustainability and brought the critical university resource up to current library standards.  Major renovations created modern new study areas and office spaces along with building envelope upgrades that improved the building’s thermal energy performance while also achieving an ultra modern aesthetic appearance more reflective of the University’s progressive ideals.  The building encompasses 55,337 gsf on four levels with a basement and mechanical penthouse. WFT provided plumbing and fire protection design and construction administration services.
