JVP Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering design services for the construction of this new three–story, 22,000 square foot library for the District of Columbia Public Library Commission.
JVP conducted a study of different alternatives to select the most adequate systems for the library facilities, including considerations for energy savings. Services also included design development phases, preparation of biddable and permitable construction documents packages, value engineering and obtaining necessary building permits and approvals. In addition to these services, JVP provided limited construction administration and project close-out services.
This project was designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification, and to date has been featured in the Wall Street Journal’s as one of their 2010 “Best Architecture,” buildings. Additionally, the modern library design has received accolades in many periodicals and blogs.
