Contract awarded for $44m refurb of Georgia library

Commissioners in Fulton County, Georgia, have awarded a US$44.2m contract for renovations to the area’s central library.

The design/build contract was awarded to Winter Johnson Group, a joint venture. It includes all services from design development through all phases of construction and post construction for the renovations of Fulton County's brutalist-style library designed by architect Marcel Breuer.

The scope of work includes the goal of achieving LEED Gold certification.  

On 16 July 2008, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners voted to place a US$275m bond referendum on the November 2008 ballot to implement the Library Facility Master Plan. The referendum was approved with 65% voter support. Phase I of the facility master plan, the construction of eight new libraries and renovation/expansion of two libraries, has been completed. Phase II includes the renovation of 22 existing libraries, of which the Central Library renovation is a part.
