University Heights Public Library
University Heights, Ohio
University Heights Public Library was an outdated building with inadequate parking and building entry. A significant renovation and addition have made the library a modern destination for the community. Tec completed full mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology engineering. The four existing air-handling units were replaced with two larger, but more efficient units. The units were located on the roof to minimize their sightlines.
New ADA restrooms were located in the main entrance lobby allowing for use during after-hours events in the meeting rooms. The electrical system and lighting were replaced throughout the building. Lighting in the Children’s area is unique. When the general-purpose lighting is dimmed, other fixtures emulate stars.
