Independent MA School Selects BCI Modern Library Furniture for Renovation

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

Established in 1920, the Beaver Country Day School, located in Chestnut Hill, MA, is an independent college preparatory school housing students in grades 6-12. Currently, there are approximately 450 students enrolled at the school.

The school is undergoing a renovation project consisting of refurbishing the 15,711 square feet of the actual library and erecting a 22,500 square feet research and design center. Part of the new library will be collaboration, workshop and research spaces.

Our BCI Modern Library Furniture dealer, Red Thread, provided the Ratio Square Display Shelving with Casters for the new library. This product can be used to display or house books — making it a versatile option. The casters enable the shelving to be mobile. Color choices include a subtle grey to a bright orange.

Boylston Public Library Nearing Completion Featuring BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

What started out in 1792 as a private institution,  the Boylston Public Library, located in Boylston, MA is nearing a huge renovation completion.  After roughly four years, Phase II of the construction is set to be finished this spring. The library currently serves over 4,300 residents in Boylston. The lack of community rooms, updates to the electrical wiring to support current technology, ADA compliance, insufficient shelving space, as well as other renovations, were a top priority for the library.

Utilizing the MHEC (Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium) purchasing contract, a great deal of time and money were saved throughout the building process.

Working with R.E. Dinneen Architects & Planners, Inc., Longo Associates, a BCI Modern Library Furniture dealer, took the lead in providing high quality and unique modern library furnishings. The products chosen were:

The shelving solved the library’s problem of lack of space for materials. With its sleek contemporary design, Ratio Shelving provides functionality and a winning style, not to mention the endless color choices.

Simply Universal Reading Tables are the answer to the technology needs of today with its ability to provide electricity for computers, concealing any wiring, all while maintaining its adaptability in any setting.

 

 

Below is a sketch of the library showing more detail on the Phase II Renovation:
