Boston-based Ann Beha Architects (Princeton’s Carl A. Fields Center) designed an $18 million renovation and expansion to the Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls, New York that recently opened to the public and is in pursuit of an unspecified level of LEED certification.
The scope of the project included a renovation of the library’s three-story main building, which dates from 1931 and was designed by Charles Platt , as well as a 39,400-square-foot, canopied glass addition. Green design features emphasize building system performance and natural daylighting in addition to incorporating recycled-content and locally-sourced construction materials.
The project team also featured Glens Falls-based JMZ Architects and Planners as associate architects. The Crandall Public Library is located at 251 Glen Street in Glen Falls’ Three Squares Historic District.
