“The Fillmore Library Expansion Project provided extensive upgrades to the original building, built in 1955, including upgraded electrical services and a new HVAC system, but we also added 2,500 sq feet. The project also included the construction of a new conference room, an innovation lab, community classroom, reading room, computer lab, two new study rooms, and new restrooms.” said Devi Nallamala, Project Manager, Engineering Services.
