Hoffman Invigorates Three Lakes Library with Renovation Design

(Appleton, WI) – A groundbreaking ceremony was held on May 8, 2018, for the $2.2 million project to renovate and expand the Demmer Memorial Library in Three Lakes, Wis.

“The primary project goal was to create a design that would better serve library users and staff members in Three Lakes,” said Jody Andres, senior project architect for Hoffman Planning, Design and Construction, which provided design services for the project. “Specifically, this meant developing a more modern and open environment for the library that features additional activity spaces. The nearly 13,000sf project, which includes updated finishes, a new children’s reading nook, and an increased book collection area, is designed to refresh the library, relieve overcrowding, and make the entire facility handicap-accessible.

There will also be significant improvements to the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems to improve efficiency and reduce maintenance.

An added bonus is reception space for the neighboring museum. “We’ve worked closely with the adjacent Three Lakes Historical Society to create a welcome center that can be used for their events throughout the year,” Andres added.

The renovation won’t be limited to the interior of the library, which was originally built in 1971. The exterior will undergo a major facelift with updated siding, ADA upgrades, and a new canopy and vestibule to create a new front entrance.

Greenfire Management Services, LLC of Milwaukee is serving as the construction manager for the project, which is expected to be completed in late 2018.
