Gainesville, FL – NuJak Companies just completed their first expansion project since opening an office in Gainesville, FL with the Alachua County District Library Tower Road Branch. The project consisted of adding 8,500 SF to the existing 15,000 SF to complete 23,500 SF of new, innovative library space.  New features include a dedicated space for teens and children to work on crafts or watch movies, an expanded children’s indoor and outdoor area, a larger meeting room for library and community events, a quiet reading room for traditional library users, three study rooms, new restrooms, and more.  The project cost totaled $2.1 million.

NuJak began construction on the project in February 2017 and partnered with architect McKellips Associates, Inc.  The team also included mechanical engineer Campbell Spellicy Engineering, structural engineer Wayland Structural Engineering, and civil engineer EDA Engineers/Surveyors/Planners, Inc.

NuJak handed over the keys to the finished library at the beginning of the month.  Since then, library staff has been transitioning library services from the temporary mobile space.  The library has been closed since February 10th and will remain closed through February 16th, 2018.

The Alachua County Library District’s Tower Road Branch will hold its Grand Re-Opening on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 10:00 AM at 3020 SW 75th Street, Gainesville, FL.  Library services will start in the new library immediately following the re-opening celebration.
