FY16 Capital Projects

by admin

As reported at the January 13 meeting of the library’s Board of Trustees, current capital project requests include work for the Jamaica Plain, Dudley, and Parker Hill branches as well as continuing support for the Central Library Renovation, energy projects, McKim plaza drainage and waterproofing, and infrastructure projects in FY16 and years following. Security, the Archival Center, Johnson building roof, signage, and technology needs are also included in the capital requests. Next steps for the Roslindale and Faneuil branches, as well as a slate of other branch projects, remain under review for the full five-year capital plan. An increase to the annual critical repair line item, as well as the mechanical systems analysis systemwide, as a complement to the Branch Facilities review, is also in the plans.
