Located on a very tight site in the heart of downtown Lansing, this project
required exceptional vigilance in order to ensure the safety of college students,
visitors and pedestrian traffic.

This 40,000 SF project consisted of renovating the existing 18,000 SF
historical (circa 1903) Carnegie Library and connecting it to a new 22,000 SF
addition.

The new addition was constructed with modern materials and with a unique
façade that complimented the historic library structure.

LCC’s new University Center hosts classrooms and administration areas.

The renovation included completely removing all existing systems and the
installation of new systems and finishes, while maintaining a constant focus on
preserving the library’s original historic integrity and ambiance.

This project was built to be LEED-compliant if the college ever chooses to
pursue/invest in formal certification.
