Mobile Steel Library Shelving by BCI Used at the Bay College Renovation Project

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

Located on 150 acres, Bay College in Escanaba, Michigan was founded in 1962. While the college is a community college offering two year degree programs, students completing baccalaureate and masters degrees offered by partnering universities make up the population as well. With over 5,000 credit students each year, the college has recently undergone some much needed renovations.

BCI Modern Library Furniture was chosen to supply Mobile 60/30 Classic Steel Shelving with Steel Canopy Tops and Steel End Panels.

As libraries are continuing to evolve, becoming more of a place to gather, reconsideration of the type of furniture is critical. This unique type of shelving offers a durable option, as well as the mobility to move it allowing easy reconfiguration. Its simplistic design makes it aesthetically pleasing.

Below are the finished photos:

BCI Modern Library Furniture Recent Install at University of Colorado INSTAAR

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The University of Colorado’s Institute of Artic and Alpine Reserach (INSTAAR) serves as one of the oldest institutes. The primary goal of the institute had been on the polar and alpine regions due to their noticeable effects of global change. Over the last few decades, the institute has expanded its programs to cover environmental challenges that include local, regional and global. To meet these needs, a more modern library was needed to expand its resources. A recent renovation to the library included shelving from BCI Modern Library Furniture. BCI’s 60/30 Steel Radius Shelving was chosen due to its unique flexibility and ability to withstand years of use. The 60/30 Steel Radius Shelving’s modular design allows for customization and ensures the best use of space.

Calgary, Alberta Public Libraries Getting a Renovation With BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The Calgary Public Library system encompasses 18 branches. Recently the Nose Hill and Quarry Park branch libraries have been undergoing renovations.

Assisting in these two renovations is BCI Modern Library Furniture. BCI’s large selection of highly constructed, modern furniture is designed for today’s libraries. As more libraries enter a phase of not being just a place to check out books, they are also gathering places for learning and socializing and require modifications to address these needs. BCI’s furniture offers functionality and practicality for any library setting.

The Nose Hill branch has been going through an extensive three phase renovation project. The final phase of the project is set for completion in late September. Some of the highlights of the new library will include:

  • A new modern children’s area
  • New shelving systems with lighting
  • A new design with more areas for quiet study
  • Extra seating for reading, working together and studying

And More!

The Quarry Park branch is part of a much bigger project – the Quarry Park Recreational Facility. This 94,000 square foot facility will house the new 9,000 square foot library. Other amenities of the facility include:

  • Fitness Center
  • Running Track
  • Day Care
  • Food Services
  • Meeting rooms
  • Classrooms
  • Multi-purpose rooms

BCI Dealer: HBI

Products: Double Faced Opal Shelving, Single Faced Opal Shelving, 60/30 Steel Radius Shelving, Picture Book Browsers with Casters, Ordrup Magazine Display

Below are some pre-completion photos of the shelving:

Posted by Tracy Lenok in Uncategorized

CR PL

Among the six awardees of the 2015 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards was the Cedar Rapids Public Library.  These awards,  which are governed jointly by a division of the ALA, the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA),  embolden superiority in architectural planning and designing of libraries.  These new modern library designs are needed to accommodate the needs of the community and bring libraries into the 21st century.
