LEED Silver Certified

Craig Gaulden Davis was commissioned to oversee and coordinate a complex renovation and addition of to an existing, 60,000 SF, land-locked main library on Baxter Street in Athens, Georgia. With no room to attain the required spaces on site, CGD recommended the Library enter a joint-use agreement with the adjacent school to utilize excess parking on school property. With this agreement in place, the addition is positioned in front of the existing library on a steeply sloped embankment not suitable for parking. This location affords the
opportunity to reinvent the library entrance and make it more visible from Baxter Street.
