AB Bradley was retained to build an addition to Carnegie Building in Lawrence, Kansas. The building was constructed in 1904 and served as the Lawrence Public Library until 1972, when a new library was constructed. Now, the building serves as an office and rental space for public use. We provided pre-construction planning and consultation to ensure that the new addition and the upgrades we made to the existing site would maintain the historical value of the building. We also made certain that the design of the new addition wouldn’t take away from the original aesthetic of the building and structure. The addition included an elevator and a wheelchair accessible entrance which made Carnegie Building compliant with ADA standards for Accessible Design.
This project won the Medallion Award for Rehabilitation from the Kansas Preservation Alliance.
