West Regional Library

The West Regional Library and Parking Garage Project, located at Broward County’s West Regional Complex in the City of Plantation, involved the construction of a new ultramodern concrete tilt-panel library building totaling 75,000 SF.  The project included a new 200 car, pre-cast concrete parking garage adjacent to the new library.  The new library building is unique in its mixture of exterior aluminum cladding veneers, abundance of exterior impact glass, as well as its illuminated second story vaulted clerestory.  With a major focus on technology and digital media, in addition to traditional reading facilities, the library includes a technology rich electronic training lab, as well as a new multipurpose/media room able to accommodate 350 patrons for various media and presentation functions.
