Parker Library – Douglas County Libraries
BCER Engineering provided Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, and Fire Alarm Consulting services for three new libraries in Douglas County. Each of the new libraries reflect the community’s growth and needs for increased amenities, spaces and services. All three of these unique locations offer convenient drive-through book drop offs and utilize the latest technology systems. While these projects did not pursue LEED certification, the intent of LEED Silver was the performance guideline of the projects.
The large two-story building is approximately 44,000 sf. Children are welcomed to play in the interactive play area in between the library’s frequent story-times. The local residents have the ability to utilize the digital creativity lab in addition to the library’s multiple high-tech study rooms and meeting spaces. The library has a café-style lounge and if someone is interested in a quiet place they can retreat in the comfortable seating area next to the fireplace on the second floor.
