UVA Alderman Library

UVA Alderman Library Renewal

Donley’s is currently working on the UVA Alderman Library Renewal project for Skanska. The project — expected to be complete in the summer of 2022 — will build a new 130,000-square-foot addition on roughly the same footprint of today’s stacks and renovate 100,000 square feet of the historic building. The renovated library will include open shelving for our extensive holdings, study areas, reading rooms, staff work areas and spaces for scholarly research and preservation of books. Two interior light wells will be enclosed with a glass roof to become study courts. The project will enhance circulation to central grounds with a new entrance facing University Avenue.

Our scope includes:

  • 6 levels of CIP slabs for the new addition
  • A new shear wall in the existing building
  • Foundations, foundation walls, columns, and framed slabs.
