Rego Park Community Library
Rego Park Community Library is undergoing a redevelopment involving the demolition of the original building and construction of an 18,500 SF, two-story library that will double the size of the previous space. The new building will provide separate reading rooms, computer spaces, and areas for educational and community activities. Langan prepared documents to address the demolition and site restoration, provided a scope for subsurface conditions to satisfy the building code, and made sure sustainable design practices complied with Local Law 86. We also implemented innovative stormwater management technologies to comply with design guidelines and NYCDEP requirements. Other sustainable features for this project include green roofs, rainwater detention, and a highly insulated building envelope.
