“The project involved new construction on three sides of the library, a complete renovation of the existing spaces, and extensive site work all to be done while the library was open to the public. This required multiple phases with constant adjustments. A.P. Construction’s team was able to plan and execute this complex schedule while maintaining the safety of the staff and public as well as providing the quality of work we required. A great company to work with.”
