[ARCHIVED] Petersburg Public Library Wins Project of the Year

The American Public Works Association (APWA) Mid-Atlantic Chapter has recently selected the City of Petersburg’s Public Library for Public Works Project of the Year, for structures, $5 million to 25 million. The new library opened April 2014.

“I am excited about this recognition as it formally recognizes the new library as a true beacon in the Petersburg community,” said William E. Johnson, III, City Manager. “The library serves as a main resource in providing continuous efforts to grow participation in early childhood literacy, financial and computer literacy programs and fitness for seniors.”

Selection criteria included: good construction management techniques, safety performance, community relations, environmental resource safety and awareness, unusual accomplishments under adverse conditions and use of sustainable infrastructure.

“The project was designed utilizing the United States Green Building Council’s LEED rating system and this project received LEED Certification. This demonstrates the City’s commitment to create more livable and sustainable communities,” said Steven W. Hicks, Director of Public Works. “I am proud of the team’s approach in providing a quality facility that will serve future generations and honored that APWA recognized the City for this accomplishment.”

The Petersburg Public Library was a joint effort between the City of Petersburg Department of Public Works, Petersburg Public Library System, Enteros Design Architects and EDC Construction Company. The project has also been nominated for a national APWA Public Works Project of the Year award.

“The Mid-Atlantic Chapter commends the City of Petersburg for their hard work and dedication towards the completion of their project,” comments Donald J. Cole, 2015 APWA Mid-Atlantic Chapter Awards Committee Chair.
