Shain Library Renovation at Connecticut College

STV performed owner’s project management services for the renovation of the four-story, 100,000-square-foot Charles E. Shain Library at Connecticut College. The firm was also responsible for furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) procurement and coordination, as well as relocation services.

The renovation of the 1973 building included the installation of a large expanse of glass in the original concrete façade, selected interior demolition and renovation, and a 600-square-foot addition to the front entrance and front façade. Additional improvements included 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 award-winning project was completed five months ahead of schedule.
