A New, Multi-Functional Library in Johnson County

With more people calling Shawnee, Kansas home, the demand placed on area libraries has increased. The Johnson County Library knew it was time to add a branch to this growing part of the metro. They wanted to create a community center that was multi-use and state-of-the-art.

To accomplish this, they hired The Clark Enersen Partners to design the new, Monticello Library and McCownGordon to lead the construction. Our team provided manual and motorized roller shades and drapery for the project. In addition, we installed concealed, roller shade pockets on the first floor where they planned to add more shades at a later date. This approach will help them limit future impacts to the facility relating to the installation of the roller shades, while minimizing costs and disturbance to the building as well.

We also worked with the library to add architectural, fabric hanging panels, which allow them to divide the meeting rooms and provide acoustic properties to benefit the surrounding space. Now, with this feature, they have the flexibility to offer several sizes and kinds of facilities, ultimately giving patrons and staff more ways to use the building.

We offer comprehensive knowledge of furniture and complete space planning.

“CBRE has had several successful projects with Facility Systems.  The combination of facility management design services, furniture procurement, architectural products and move management capabilities all in one company is great.  It saves us time and headaches because we we’re not dealing with multiple parties for all of those scopes.  Their staff will always go above and beyond our expectations to meet the needs of the client and project.”
