Ridgefield Library

Historic Public Library Renovations


Kohler Ronan was pleased to be part of the recently completed Ridgefield Library project. This historic two-story building dating back to 1903, and totaling 5,000 square feet, had been subject to numerous, miscellaneous additions before finally being slated for renovations that would create a more unified and up-to-date facility for both employees and library patrons. In accordance with the proposed plan, the existing addition was demolished and replaced with a new 43,000 square-foot program. The historic 1903 building was retained and restored, while a connection was created between the historic facility and the new addition. Kohler Ronan provided MEP/FP designs for the entire project.
