CTA Marks Milestone as Interior Renovations Underway at Hopkinton Library
Renovations will upgrade and restore the historical interior of the Hopkinton Public Library as part of the ongoing expansion and renovation project
Hopkinton, MA (April 4, 2017) – CTA Construction Managers today announced significant progress to revamp the Hopkinton Public Library. Project supervisors confirmed that the interior portion of its renovation of the library is in full swing while the exterior work is nearly completed. The ongoing project aims to modernize and expand the 120-year-old building on South Street in Hopkinton.
CTA Construction and Johnson-Roberts Associates, the architect for the library, started the $8.2 million renovation and expansion project in March. Construction consists of expanding the three-level library to 22,000 square feet, adding meeting space, and ensuring full accessibility.
“Construction at the Hopkinton Public Library is really taking shape. The installation of interior finishes has begun and we look forward to delivering a state-of-the-art library that will make Hopkinton residents proud,” said Paul DuRoss, Vice President at CTA Construction.
The existing Hopkinton Public Library is comprised of two historic buildings: the original library built in 1895, and the adjacent Episcopal Church built in 1898. An addition in 1967 joined the two buildings together and expanded the library to the current 5,783 square feet. The interior work on these two historic buildings updated them to better reflect the needs of a 21st century library, while maintaining the character and detail of the original structures.
When complete, the project will also add computer terminals for access to digital collections, a children's room including story/activity space, a technology classroom and computers, a young adult section with homework area and room for study groups, and space for library programs and after-hours community events. The completed project will be seeking LEED Silver certification, and will include new onsite parking. The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.
