FEATURED PROJECT

Arthenia L. Joyner University Area Community Library

This project was a design-build 15,000 SF building in northern Hillsborough County, located in the University Area Community Development Area. The facility was constructed next to an elementary school, and required close coordination with their campus. The building included a state-of-the-art media center and community gathering space, with a historical exhibit on women leaders in Tampa.
