Dick Building Company was selected by The Ellis School as the general contractor for the renovation of the school library, located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s East End. Special attention was given to the safety, security, and privacy of the students and faculty throughout the course of the project. Work began on the 1,250 SF library in the beginning of March 2019 and was completed in late June 2019.
Renovations included steel supports for a new HVAC system and new acoustic tile ceiling, lighting fixtures, countertops and flooring were also part of the project. The installation of a Monetary glass wall allows natural light, providing an open and clean feel to this integral space. Dick Building Company and The Ellis School collaborated well in design and in all decision making. The collaboration between The Ellis school and DBC during the design and construction process has resulted in an enhanced educational environment for all members of the Ellis community.
