System staff are available to provide basic consulting service on space utilization, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other issues. In addition, NEKLS makes available the services of David Dunfield, an experienced library architect, to provide consulting services regarding such issues as analysis of sites and existing buildings, utilization of existing library space, and criteria for selection of building program consultants and architects. Extensive architectural design services are beyond the scope of this program.
Requesting Building Consulting Assistance
Contact Laura DeBaun to discuss your building planning and evaluation needs. When appropriate, a referral will be provided to the architect for consulting services.
Libraries are encouraged to arrange for consulting services at the earliest possible stage in building projects in order to consider all building options and obtain the maximum benefit from this service.
