Special Features of the Denmark Library Design
Denmark Library will be the first library in the county with a drive-up window for retrieving holds. This is intended to provide maximum convenience and accessibility for patrons.
Denmark will have more study rooms (6) than any other library in Forsyth County.
Denmark Library will have a partitionable 2,611 square foot meeting room that can be used for library programs or reserved by the public.
Denmark will feature 75,000 books and materials in a variety of languages tailored to the residents of Forsyth County.
Denmark Library will include a 412 square foot quiet room that is perfect for reading or studying.
Denmark will be the first library in the county to offer smaller study rooms designed for 1–2 people, perfect for remote personal working spaces.
The main building’s frame is now completed and roof decking is currently being placed. The interior ceiling shown in the photos is made of acoustical panels which will serve as the finished ceiling for the majority of patron areas throughout the Library. A turn lane is being cut in from Fowler Road, and curbing and gutter leading from the main road has been poured, giving the entryway a more defined look. Over the coming weeks, the focus will be on completing the roof decking and beginning the installation of the perimeter wall framing.
Construction on the building has begun, with vertical steel supports and I-beams being installed. The Library loading dock's final cement pour was also completed. In the coming weeks, the main focus will be on erecting steel and putting on the steel decking for the roof.
In early December, crews worked on the parking lot by laying gravel, installing curbing and completing the initial asphalt layer.
Later in December, concrete was poured in the early morning hours to complete the building pad and ensure maximum drying time.
Crews continued work on the storm drainage system and access vault. They also completed the building's footings and added parking lot curbs and gutters.
The team carried out proof rolling and impaction testing to ensure stability for the building pad and worked to get the storm drainage system installed.
The grading of the building pad is now finished and we are turning our attention to the grading of the parking lot and preparing the site for the storm drain, sanitary sewer, and underground utilities.
We officially broke ground on the Denmark Library on July 27, 2023 and are now actively preparing the site for construction. The initial erosion control requirement and inspections have been completed. Up next: grading, storm drainage, and utilities!
