The new El Gabilan Library is a $21 million project two-story, 21,076 Sq.Ft. building for the City of Salinas that includes a spacious main lobby, a tech maker space, and of course, library circulation faculties. The new library is designed with a community focus that features an outdoor children’s zone, a teen area, homework help area and an outdoor patio and amphitheater. Parking for staff and members of the public is also included in the design for the project. The project was completed on-time and on-budget using a 63-20 Progressive Design-Build delivery approach. Bothman partnered with Swinerton Builders to provide a turnkey sitework package that included landscaping, underground utilities, decorative sitework, architectural and structural concrete.
