The new Peoria Public Library – North Branch is a 30,000 square foot facility housing state of the art library services that will extend to the northern most areas of Peoria. The modern facility incorporates traditional library collections and meeting rooms with cozy reading areas including a large fire place area and a trellis covered outdoor patio. Exterior features of the building include a prairie savanna landscape, environmentally sensitive bioswales, and walking trails through the Illinois native plant landscape. River City Construction is working in conjunction with the Owner and the Design Team to facilitate a project that meets the budget, schedule, and goals of all parties involved.
- Owner: Peoria Public Library
- Architect: Farnsworth Group
- Status: Completed February 2011
“We had very difficult budget constraints during these projects. River City Construction provided excellent value engineering advice which enabled construction to be of the highest quality, but not over-priced. These decisions were a complete team effort with RCC and the Board of Trustees Building Committee striving to reach the same goals.”
“In conclusion, I believe the Main Library, new North Branch, Carnegie Lincoln Branch addition and renovation, the renovated McClure Branch and the refurbished Lakeview Branch speak for themselves. These were five different and distinct projects with each having unique challenges River City Construction guided the Peoria Public Library Board to an exceptionally successful result.
I recommend River City Construction to any organization contemplating a building project without hesitation and am available to elaborate on any additional questions.”
