Project Description

After changing the city ordinance to allow for Construction Management at Risk, the City of Augusta selected JF Scott Construction as their construction manager on the Expansion and Renovation of Lithgow Library.  The project, designed by Johnson Roberts Associates, consisted of the demolition of the 1979 addition and replacement with a 20,000 square foot addition.  The existing 9000 sf original structure (which was built in 1896) remained, with the interior renovated including mechanical, electrical and sprinkler infrastructure.  Improvements to the existing building envelope were also a major component of the project.  Substantial Completion was achieved on June 14th, over two months ahead of schedule.

Project Cost:  8.9 Million
