Fulton County East Roswell Library

Ajax Building Corporation was selected to be the construction manager for East Roswell Library Branch in Fulton County, Georgia. This 17,370 SF / $6.2 million library is a great asset to the local community. The project was anticipated to be LEED Silver and one of the main focuses of the design was a connection with the wooded surroundings to create a functional library space within a canopy of trees. There was a connection to park walking and cycling trails, a covered material return and customer drop off, and a welcoming covered bridge entry.

LIBRARY FEATURES:

Knowledge Center: 3,500 SF including collections, seating, 3 group study rooms for 2-4 people, and 3 individual study rooms for 1-2 people.

Discovery Center: 3,500 SF including interactive play areas, a Story / Craft room, collections, seating, and technology.

The SPOT: 580 SF designated for teens including gaming, collections, seating, and technology.
Multi-Purpose Room: 1,000 SF accessible after library operating hours.

Learning Station: 800 SF with 15 public computers; 1 print release station; 2 express stations; and Wi-Fi available throughout the building.

Funded by a local bond referendum approved by Fulton County voters in 2008, Ajax kept as much of the construction dollars in the community as possible. In addition, Ajax intended to include local schools, community centers and neighborhoods throughout the design, construction and opening of the library. This was a state-of-the-art facility designed and constructed to meet the needs of citizens of East Roswell.
