Massachusetts Firm Awarded Historic Library Renovation Project

Somerville, MA – CTA Construction Managers announced that it has been awarded a contract to renovate Somerville’s historic West Branch Library. The 100-year-old library is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is classified as a Carnegie Library.

During the renovation, CTA Construction will oversee the updating and modernization of the historic building to allow for better access and enhanced operations and programming.

The updated and renovated library will feature new multipurpose and flex spaces to host library-sponsored programs, public meetings and other events, designated quiet reading and study areas, and an indoor/outdoor book drop.

In addition, the renovated library will include modernized mechanical, electrical, plumbing and computer networking systems, and a new elevator.

These updates will allow the West Branch Library to increase programming opportunities for individuals of all ages and create a more visitor-friendly space.
