Florida Gulf Coast University Library Expansion

Florida Gulf Coast University has a strong commitment to creating a campus with an emphasis on technology and innovation with an environmental focus. As the campus population has grown, so has the need for more support facilities. One of the areas that needed an expansion was the current library. The existing facility not only housed the library, but University Administration. Because of the continued campus growth, FGCU selected Ajax Building Corporation to build an addition to the current Library.

The new Library Expansion will support the needs of the University for the next 20 years. So with this in mind, architect M.C. Harry & Associates designed an approximately 108,000 SF expansion. About 60,000 square feet of the new four-story building is being used for library purposes, bringing library capacity up to about 120,000 square feet. Remaining space in the new building includes classrooms and faculty and staff offices.
