The ground floor and basement feature prominent commercial retail space, with a transparent glass skin that creates a variety of lighting throughout the building. The facility is barrier-free to encourage social interaction and engagement. Conceived as a library without books, it is a library built for the digital age that encourages students to interact with their physical environment.
WSP USA was commissioned to manage the project, the professional teams and the construction manager from project initiation to year-end warranty reviews. We implemented project management procedures, managed costs and budget monitoring systems, oversaw commissioning and LEED Gold accreditation, monitored risks and opportunities, and managed project changes and documentation.
