CTA Construction Breaks Ground on New Tufts Library in Weymouth, MA
City officials and CTA leadership mark start of construction on 50,000 square-foot library and outdoor amphitheater
Weymouth, Mass. (March 28, 2019) – CTA Construction Managers joined elected officials and Tufts Library leaders to mark the official ground breaking of a new 50,000 square foot library to be located on the site of the original building on Broad Street.
The new library, which will feature a greatly expanded children’s literature department, several community meeting rooms, innovative technological advancements, and an outdoor amphitheater, will replace the current library, which is over 50 years old.
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. The library is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.
“Public libraries are community hubs and represent one of the most important resources in a town,” said Paul DuRoss, Principal at CTA Construction. “We are excited to work on the state-of-the-art new Tufts Library project. This new facility, once complete, will provide the opportunity for enhanced programs and activities and that will benefit residents of all ages.”
The new Tufts Library building will provide significant technology updates and added space for the Weymouth community. In addition to the expanded children’s section and community meeting spaces, the new facility will feature open reading areas, study rooms, a local history center, and a media lab capable of supporting computer modeling and advanced audio-visual projects. It will also feature free wireless internet and upgraded computers for public use.
CTA Construction is working alongside project architect Tappe Architects, Inc. and the owner’s project manager, Hill International, on the Tufts Library 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.
