Project Background

North Valley Library Construction

The North Valley Public Library suffered severe damages as a result of a fire that happened in early July 2013.

Since the fire, the contents of the building have been removed for cleaning and the library's restoration is underway.

The county's insurance carrier has approved approximately $450,000 worth of work to be done and Williamson Restoration, Inc. of Albuquerque has been named as the restoration vendor.

The county carries insurance on the building and the city carries insurance on the contents. County, city and library staff are working very closely together to get this project completed as quickly as possible.

All needed remediation is being thoroughly done and upgrades to the HVAC and electrical systems have been required in order to meet current codes.

Phase 1

  • the cleaning of the entire building including the removal of ceiling grids, some of the insulation, ductwork, and possibly some electrical and mechanical equipment depending upon the level of damage sustained
  • the wood vaulted ceiling and all of the beams and posts will need to be sandblasted
  • the walls and the carpet must be removed
  • one structural column will need to be replaced
