Innovative Library Shines With Metal Composite Material

MCA Innovative Library Shines

By Metal Construction Association. 

Metal composite panels accentuate the playful building design and enhance this new regional library as a focal point in the community. 

What used to be the Acworth and Kennesaw public libraries in Cobb County, Georgia is now a beautiful, state-of-the-art building featuring metal composite panels on its exterior. Consolidating two 1960’s-built libraries, North Cobb Regional Library opened in September 2019, bringing these communities together. The 25,000 square foot project was completed by Batson-Crook Construction, with a budget of $8.6 million. 

The new library includes creative spaces, a community room, study rooms, dedicated children and teen areas, an outdoor plaza for children, state-of-the-art technology, and a drive-up book return. The space has been hailed as a bright light in the community and for future generations by local officials. It is a contemporary facility that now serves two communities in creative and innovative ways - it's not just about books. The regional library has already broken records and has the highest material circulation of any library in the system. 

In line with creative new spaces on the interior, the exterior of the building was designed with playful, angular sightlines, that are accentuated with metal composite material panels in ALUCOBOND® PLUS Harvest Gold from 3A Composites. For the project, MillerClapperton fabricated 9,870 square feet of material and installed more than 300 panels. MillerClapperton is proud to be part of projects like this, that enhance our community.
