CTA Construction Awarded Contract for Weymouth’s Tufts Library Project
CTA Construction awarded 50,000-square-foot Tufts Library that will feature expanded children’s department, community meeting rooms, outdoor amphitheater and latest technology
Weymouth, MA (January 28, 2019) – CTA Construction Managers announced today the company has been awarded a contract for the new $24.1 million 50,000-square-foot Tufts Library in Weymouth. The project is a cooperative venture between the Town of Weymouth and the Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program, which awarded Weymouth over $12 million for the construction of a new library.
“We are thrilled to have been selected as the construction managers for this exciting project that will feature a variety of reading and community spaces and the latest technology,” said Jeffery Hazelwood, principal at CTA Construction. “This new, state-of-the-art library will serve the community for generations to come, and we are looking forward to working with the Town of Weymouth and all of our partners as we begin the remediation and construction process.”
The project will demolish the existing Tufts Library building, which is over 50 years old, and construct a new and modern 21st-century library on the same site. The planned library will include an expanded children’s services department, community meeting rooms, open reading areas, study rooms, a local history center, and an outdoor amphitheater along with other outdoor open spaces.
The new Tufts Library will also feature innovative technology, including a media lab that will support computer modeling and advanced audio-visual projects and upgraded public computers and wireless internet.
CTA Construction is working alongside Tappe Architects on the Tufts Library project. The project is slated to be completed in June 2020.
Waltham-based CTA Construction has completed more than 65 high-quality municipal construction projects in the Commonwealth since it was founded in 2000, making the company one of the most experienced municipal builders in the state.
