Champaign Public Library
Owner: City of Champaign
Location: Champaign, IL
The purpose of this project was to design and construct a state of the art library for the City of Champaign. This new library facility replaces the existing library located on the 4.36 acre site and includes a new 196 space parking lot. The project includes the area bounded by Healy Street to the north, Randolph Street to the east, Green Street to the south and State Street to the west.
IEI's responsibilities for the Champaign Public Library project consisted of two construction phases with multiple design package submittals. During Phase I, IEI provided civil engineering services for the design of the south parking lot and new library. In Phase II of this project, the existing library was demolished to make way for expansion of the temporary parking lot to serve as the library's permanent parking lot. IEI prepared schematic design, design development and construction documents, and specifications.
