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 a more expansive library facility. FGCU selected Ajax Building Corporation to build this project based on previous successful Construction Management delivery on campus.

The new library facility supports the needs of the University for the next 20 years. Architect M.C. Harry & Associates designed this 108,000SF facility to compliment the original library on campus. 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. The library has a central core of stack shelving looped with primary circulation and perimeter reading rooms and lounges, each with expansive views to the lush campus landscape. Program elements include private group study rooms, internet wired reading tables, the University Archives, stack areas for 390,000 volumes, special collections, classrooms, faculty and staff offices, and meeting spaces.
