Carlsbad Dove Library Renovation

Carlsbad, CA

The City of Carlsbad commissioned Group 4 to renovate two of its three libraries to modernize library service, improve operations, and freshen the library experience while preserving the desirable qualities of the two buildings. The renovations introduced a variety of new user group spaces, collaborative work spaces, and a 21st century service model, almost entirely within the buildings’ original walls.
The modernization at both facilities included replacement of finishes and carpets, reconfiguration of technology and stacks areas, construction of dedicated meeting rooms, study rooms, and teen spaces, FF&E, improvements to back-of-house spaces, exterior repairs and upgrades, ADA upgrades, and incorporation of modern mechanical, low voltage, and fire prevention systems.
