VANCEBURG, Ky. - Aug. 28, 2018 - PRLog -- General contracting firm Trace Creek Construction began work on a renovation and addition for the Bracken County Public Library in association with Jeff Pearson of the prestigious architectural firm Pearson and Peters Architects.

Work on the $800,000 project began on July 9, 2018, and is expected to take approximately 6 months to complete.

The existing library was built in 1995. The renovation will include the construction of a 1,695-square-foot addition on a full, cast-in-place, concrete unfinished basement; a concrete slab-on-grade with a lower-level accessible basement; poured concrete reinforced footings and foundation walls; a concrete slab over metal decking and steel-frame beams and floor joists at the main level; wood stud wall framing; wood roof trusses with plywood sheathing; and a standing seam metal roofing system. Work will also include all related site excavation and fill, trench excavation, and an underground storm water drainage system.

The existing building and new addition will receive upgraded electrical systems, as well as a new dedicated HVAC system, fire alarm system, LED lighting, and limited A/V equipment. Outside, the existing parking lot will be milled, resurfaced and re-striped. Concrete sidewalks will be partially replaced, and sod will be installed.

The addition will be a meeting room with a movie screen that will be used to accommodate more programming for the library. The current room holds up to 40 people and is inadequate for the growing community.

The Bracken County Public Library hosts book readings and discussions, magic and puppet shows, educational presentations, craft sessions, fundraisers, holiday celebrations, games and contests to promote reading, and countless learning opportunities for adults and children alike.

"The library isn't just a place to borrow books and do research. It's a place where people come together to teach, discuss, create, and celebrate. It's important that the local library is bright, welcoming, and spacious enough to accommodate activities for all ages," said Trace Creek CEO Sam Howard. "We're looking forward to completing the work quickly so that the Bracken County community can enjoy this revitalized space."

Trace Creek previously worked with Pearson and Peters Architects on the Lewis County Public Library, located across the street from Trace Creek's main office in Vanceburg, Kentucky. The library serves as an inspiration for the Trace Creek team, and is a constant reminder of how a successful partnership between a general contractor and design team can deliver exceptional results.

Trace Creek has spearheaded several other library projects, including the Paris-Bourbon County Library in Paris, Kentucky, and the Fleming County Public Library in Flemingsburg, Kentucky. The Bracken County Library project will add to the company's growing portfolio of new construction and renovation projects.
