When Central Michigan University’s Charles V. Park Library in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, recently underwent a four-floor renovation and expansion, architects specified high-density, powered mobile shelving to house the library’s collection. The 1.1-million-volume collection, which was consolidated from several campus locations, would have required 75,000 square feet had stationary shelving been used. Architects reduced the overall building footprint to 45,000 square feet simply by utilizing high density rolling compact shelving. The stacks were designed into the new addition, where the 30,000 square feet saved contributed to $6 million in construction cost savings, allowing the resulting structure to include a multi-floor atrium with an abundance of natural light. In addition to the construction cost savings the University is saving a lot of energy because they do not have to light, cool, heat, and maintain the 30,000 square feet that was eliminated during construction.
