Tonda was contracted with a $15 million renovation of the existing Weldon Library.
Construction included the 5th floor, Ground Floor, and Mezzanine area, also known as the “Two Story Learning Commons”.
The renovation aimed to preserve the library’s historic beauty by adding a Wood Cladded Feature Star and lighting to accentuate the Waffled Ceiling.
