60/30 Steel Radius Shelving60/30 Radius Shelving

The Lowell Campus of the University of Massachusetts was founded in 1894, and was known as the Lowell Normal School, a teaching college.  It was also home to the Lowell Textile School which was founded in 1895 designed to train technicians and managers in the textile industry.   In 1975 these two schools – Lowell State and Lowell Tech, combined and became the University of Lowell.  In 1991, the Lowell campus became a part of the University of Massachusetts system.   Today, the campus is considered a national research university.  The university provides over 17,000 students bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in seven colleges.  A recent renovation at the O’Leary Library included BCI’s 60/30 Steel Radius Shelving with Steel Canopy Tops and London End Panels.

Started in 1891, The Spokane Library located in Spokane, WA had just 300 volumes.  Due to some financial difficulties the library was experiencing in 1894, it was taken over by the city and became The Spokane City Library.  Today after many rebuilds, the current site which is the Downtown building, was completed in 1994.  Five new branches were added and completed by 1998.  BCI Modern Library Furniture was chosen for some recent shelving upgrades and will be used to hold picture books and beginner readers.

Arlington VA Public Schools Appoint BCI for New Library

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

Coming Soon to Discovery Elementary School!

Discovery Elementary

Construction began in March, 2014 on the Discovery Elementary School located in Arlington, VA.  This new school is known as the first ‘Net Zero’ school in Virginia.  The 98,000 square foot school will contain 2,000 solar panels and LED lighting throughout.  A Net Zero school is designed with the idea of buying the electricity and at the end of the month enough electricity should have been generated so that you have a net positive or net zero bill.  There is a one year waiting period before the new school can be assessed by a net zero certifying organization.  BCI was chosen for the new library furnishings and to become part of this first Net Zero school project.  The Discovery Elementary School is scheduled to open September, 2015.
