CSU Stanislaus Vasche Library Renovation

CSU Stanislaus Vasche Library Renovation

Project Details

Location: Turlock, CA

Square Feet: 133,077

Delivery: Collaborative Design-Build

Categories: Education, Renovations, Current Projects

Project Description

This Collaborative Design-Build partnership between Otto Construction, EHDD Architects and CSU Stanislaus will bring the 3-story 1960s era building into the 21st century. Once the renovation is complete, the 133,077SF library will be able to accommodate 1,000 people at a time.  Currently, Stan State’s collection contains 675,000 items that take up 30,603SF of space on multiple floors, but thanks to a new state-of-the-art Electronic Compact Book Storage System the same collection will only take up 16,977SF.  This feature will leave more space in the renovated library for new amenities such as 24-hour study areas, a cafe, group study spaces and quiet zones.

The first phase of the project consisted of the installation of 32 trailers to serve as a temporary home for library services. This made room for the library to be vacated before construction began.
