Spring 2023 Architects & Engineers Project Report: Mid-Continent Public Library, Riverside Branch


Posted online

True Engineering Group LLC

True Engineering Group LLC is the mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer on the library’s new $7 million branch in Riverside. The building entrance is just off a nearby park, and the front of the building is surrounded by trees. Officials say a continuous trellis wraps the front of the building to create an overhead enclosure and continue the tree canopy feel. The north wall brings natural light into the library and faces the park. Interior elements like flowing ceiling baffles mimic the pattern of the louvres of the trellis seen through the north glass wall. Public spaces will include a children’s area, study spaces, collaboration rooms, a community room and an outdoor back patio. Sapp Design Associate Architects PC designed the project, J.E. Dunn Construction Group Inc. is the general contractor, and Olsson Inc. is the civil and structural engineer. The project is expected to be completed in April 2024.
