Shain Library Renovation at Connecticut College (New London, CT)
STV/DPM performed owner’s project management services for the renovation of the four-story, 100,000-sf Charles E. Shain Library at Connecticut College. The renovation of the circa 1973 building included installing a large expanse of glass in the original concrete façade, selected interior demolition and renovation, and a 600-sf addition to the front entrance and front façade. Additional improvements include a new Technology Commons and renovated Digital Scholarship and Curriculum Center, along with new study spaces and reading rooms. A 24-hour café and study area on the first floor was also created, and a new plaza was constructed in front of the building. The $9.9 million project was completed five months ahead of schedule.
