Project Overview

Berglund Construction was the construction manager for the Skokie Public Library Expansion Project. The project entailed a new 32,000-sqft addition plus a 100,000-sqft renovation project. Thanks to a heavily phased approach, the facility remained occupied throughout construction. The west entrance was added to the building, offering convenience and safety for patrons during the project. The third floor addition incorporated a green roof, which acts as insulation during the winter and summer months.
