DFI provided construction management and inspection for the Alice Virginia and David W. Fletcher Branch of the Washington County Free Library. This project consisted of a full renovation of the existing 46,233 square feet., 3 story library in downtown Hagerstown. This library is a LEED® Silver Certified building.
The existing building was demolished in order to expose the building structure and floor slabs. The new building was constructed on the east, south, and west portions for a total area of 84,758 square feet.
The architecture of the building pays homage to the transportation history of the county from railroads and bicycles to cars and aircraft. DFI provided between 2-3 full time senior construction inspectors for Washington County. Services included inspection and coordination of partial controlled demolition of the existing building, preserving the remaining portion of the existing building, deep foundation installation, tracking of all line item quantities, sheeting and shoring.
Project scope included constructability reviews, plan reviews, coordination of schedules, preparing estimates, progress meeting coordination and documentation, public relations, schedule review/coordination, maintaining LEED® documentation, construction management and/or inspection, oversight of testing of materials from pre-final design through project construction completion.
