Renovation of The Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons at Wentworth Institute of Technology

STV worked alongside Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT) throughout the renovation of the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons in Beatty Hall. Renewal efforts included selective demolition and abatement, as well as the replacement of all mechanical and electrical systems, and windows throughout the facility. The library also received lighting, acoustical, and American Disabilities Act upgrades, along with a new compact shelving system.

The firm assisted WIT in selecting the designer and contractor, and worked closely with the library director, faculty, students, and senior administration on decisions related to the program’s budget, schedule, and building operations. Work was able to be completed even as the building was partially occupied. STV additionally coordinated the relocation and safeguarding of the library’s collection and managed the temporary relocation of the library to a dormitory and the ensuing procurement of the building’s new furniture, from delivery to installation.
