Walker Uptown Library
A 21st-century library built to serve and enhance the Uptown community, both now and well into the future. The Uptown Walker library serves as a welcoming place for people of all ages and walks of life. This modern library was built with technology, sustainability, and improved access in mind. Other enhancements include comfortable places to read with natural light, gathering spaces to support a variety of needs, an inviting area for children and youth, access to more public computers and wi-fi, flexible spaces to work and study, outdoor areas, exhibit space for art, and a coffee shop to enhance customer experience and community identity.
With the construction of this new library on the site of the former iconic, under grade Uptown Walker Library we were tasked with the demolition and removal of the existing building. This included the removal and storage of the large metal LIBRARY letters. We built the new library above ground making it full of light. We completed the project on time and on budget.
