The historical Carnegie Library’s restoration effort currently includes work on the floors, sizing for the windows and replacement sheathing as the building’s journey toward becoming the new home of the Young Adult department continues.
Floor repairs on both the main level and the upper level, interior framing on the women’s room area on the main level and the removal of steel from the wheelchair lift area are among the recent work in progress listed in an update provided by Project Manager Jack Sandezer of The Facilities Management Group (TFMG).
New windows for the building are currently being measured, with shop drawings for them to be expected in soon. The building’s replacement sheathing/fire rating scope work has also begun.
The $1.5 million project, which is located on the corner of W. Main St. and West Ave. in Patchogue Village, is currently set for completion around Jan. 2016.
