The James B. Duke Library at Furman University was among the projects profiled in Real Estate and Construction Review’s 2007 Carolinas Edition.
The 52,000 s.f. expansion and 70,000 s.f. renovation of the Greenville, SC, university library transformed the crowded facility into the intellectual heart of the Furman campus, and doubled its capacity. The director of the Library noted that the transformation has made the library “the place to be… and the jewel of the buildings on campus.”
Shepley Bulfinch worked with local associate architects Neal Prince + Partners on the project, which is targeting LEED certification.
