Helen Plum Memorial Library

Lombard, IL

Assess current performance, evaluate that performance against selected peer groups, define strategic space needs, evaluate the functional performance of the current building against the space needs, develop three conceptual options to renovate, expand or replace the building on the current site, define the costs associated with each approach and gauge the return on investment for each approach.  

A significant piece of this effort was devoted to establishing the relationship of the Library to the adjacent and historically significant Lilacia Park.  The study focused on defining strategically viable solutions that served both the Library and the Park District.  Options included renovation, expansion, and replacement in place.  Cost models and operation budgets were established for each scenario.  An extensive community engagement program was included in the Master Plan study to support a referendum anticipated for November of 2016.
