Diversified Project Management has been retained by Connecticut College for the renovation and expansion of the Charles E. Shain Library building.
As part of a $9.1M makeover, the private liberal arts college is renovating the 100,000 square-foot library and adding a new, 600 square-foot addition to the front entrance and front façade. A 24-hour student café with new outdoor patio gathering space will also be added. Renovations inside the building will be focused on collaboration spaces and circulation areas with the mission of creating a more user-friendly study environment with state-of-the-art tools and services for the student body.
DPM Project Executive, Mark DuPre’ and Senior Project Planner, Janet Wheeler are providing the onsite support and are working closely with all members of the project team including Schwartz/Silver Architects, Inc. and KBE Building Corporation.
Construction is expected to start late spring 2014 and be finished spring of 2015.
