EASTERN BRANCH PUBLIC LIBRARY

Not only did i/A and the design team perform a thorough feasibility study and needs assessment for the Floyd County Library, but also assisted in site selection. Originally, the Owner requested preliminary design and feasibility assessments for two possible project sites. While pleased with the architectural concepts, this process helped the Library understand that the locations would not be appropriate in terms of their long-term needs – so we recommended they keep shopping.

Eventually, an existing building was found in a better location and the third and final feasibility study was performed. The project was ultimately completed on the new site in the fall of 2018. During construction, i/A helped the Owners change order a savings of nearly $100,000 out of the project.

This project is just one example of how our design team prioritizes smart design decisions. Rather than starting from scratch, sometimes a little imagination and properly placed design elements can create a huge impact.
