CTA Construction Celebrates Groundbreaking of Grafton Public Library Expansion and Renovation Project
CTA leaders joined town officials for ceremony to kick off the $16.6 million renovation and expansion of Grafton Public Library
Grafton, Mass. (November 12, 2019) – CTA Construction recently joined elected officials and other community leaders to mark the official groundbreaking of the Grafton Public Library expansion and renovation project.
The project, which is expected to be completed in late spring of 2021, will transform the 1928 building into a modern 26,000 square-foot library that will better meet the needs of the growing community.
“We’re thrilled and excited to break ground on this crucial project that will update and expand Grafton Public Library,” said Paul DuRoss, a principal at CTA Construction. “The library is a welcoming and treasured community institution that benefits residents of all ages, and this updated facility will expand access and enable more programming and services to be offered.”
As part of the project, the front section of the library will be preserved with an entrance onto Grafton Common. The upper level will include the historic main reading room, showcasing original windows and woodwork, as well as meeting rooms, collections and services for adults. The lower level will house youth services and collections, including a children’s program room, a teen-tween program and gaming rooms, tutoring rooms, and mechanical and electrical equipment space.
A 117-seat community room will be added for local organizations and groups to utilize, and the renovated library will also allow for more public access to computers.
The Massachusetts Public Library Construction Program (MPLCP), administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, awarded the town of Grafton a $7.4 million grant towards the $16.6 million project.
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.
