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:

Going Back on Throwback Thursday with BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

This Throwback Thursday we are showcasing an amazing public library furniture project from a few years back. The Fairfield Public Library, located in Fairfield, CT has had many additions to the original 43,000 square foot library since its construction in 1903. Unfortunately, these additions produced a very irregular flow in the building. With an increasing number of patrons, upgrades to the interior and technology framework were needed.

By combining new custom end panels to some of the existing shelving in the library, the cost was kept well within the budget. A rich selection of both custom and standard furnishings from BCI Modern Library Furniture were selected and created that modernistic look and usability.

Project: Fairfield Public Library – Fairfield, CT

Architect: Herbert S. Newman & Partners, P.C. http://www.hsnparch.com/

WI Technical College Library Gets a Modern Make-Over Using BCI

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The Waukesha County Technical College located in Pewaukee, WI, is a public college offering two year degrees as well as certificate programs. Recently, the college has completed a renovation project which focused on satisfying the wants and needs of the students by bringing the library into the 21st century. New modern library furniture was used to add to the overall update. The renovation gives the ability for the students to plug in and utilize the tech-integrated features such as creating powerpoint presentations.

BCI Modern Library Furniture was selected to provide Unifach, a magazine display shelving unit. BCI worked directly with Waukesha County Technical College to ensure the product fit into the complete project.

The Unifach can house both current and past issues of magazines and newspapers. Its sleek modern design lends itself to that 21st century feel. The Unifach comes in a multitude of colors and wood tones to fit into any new library setting.

Below is a stock photo of the Unifach
