Weymouth, MA – CTA Construction Managers joined elected officials and Tufts Library leaders to mark the official groundbreaking for a new 50,000sf library to be located on the site of the original building on Broad Street.
CTA is working alongside project architect Tappe Architects, Inc. and the owner’s project manager, Hill International, on the project.
The new Tufts Library, which will feature a greatly expanded children’s literature department, several community meeting rooms, innovative technological advancements, and an outdoor amphitheater, will replace the current library, that is over 50 years old.
The new library will provide significant technology updates and added space for the Weymouth community. The new facility will feature open reading areas, study rooms, a local history center, and a media lab capable of supporting computer modeling and advanced audio-visual projects. It will also feature free wireless internet and upgraded computers for public use
The project is a cooperative venture between the town of Weymouth and the Mass. Public Library Construction Program, that awarded Weymouth over $12 million for construction of the new library, expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.
