Areas of Construction

After almost a decade, the Firestone renovation project is less than six weeks from completion! We’re nearing the end of Phase 6, the final phase of the renovation of over 400,000 square feet of the Firestone Library. This last phase is transforming the remainder of the 1st floor, providing six new private group study rooms and an active and flexible study area with mobile white boards and digital panel technology. There will also be additional study tables within a wall of books and some soft seating areas in the mix.  The lobby’s patterned wood floor was just brought back to its original beauty, and now visitors can get a peek into the renovated north area of the 1st floor which opens in January.

Contractors are currently completing the life safety upgrades in the Trustee Reading Room. The space’s hardwood floors will be refinished and new carpet installed on the mezzanine. New windows and shades are also being installed.This space is expected to be completed by the end of this year. Once the renovation is complete, there will be a special project starting in the northeast side of the first floor. Check back for upcoming details!

General hours of construction are M-F from 6am to 3pm. The most disruptive noise is scheduled be completed by 10:00am daily.
