Library Addition

H. Bradford Green Architect Inc. was retained by PerHol Construction Ltd. to provide the architectural design for the new accessible library addition to the existing municipal building in Oliver-Paipoonge Township. The existing library was operating on the second floor of the existing building and was not accessible to people with disabilities.

The new 1,831 s.f. addition, like the existing municipal building, is a pre-engineered steel building with split-faced concrete block to approx. nine feet above grade, with prefinished metal cladding above.

The interior consists of a spacious lobby providing barrier-free access to the existing building, the new 1,490 s.f. library and a new barrier-free unisex washroom. The clerestorey glazing allows natural lighting without restricting use of the interior wall space.

This concept was selected by the Municipality as it provides them with a more user-friendly facility and, as expected, proved to be a cost effective alternative to providing barrier-free access to the existing library space which would also have entailed an addition to accommodate a lift as well as further renovations to address barrier-free washroom facilities. Ready access to the unisex washroom for users of the municipal outdoor rink and soccer field on the site is an additional bonus.
