Griffin provided program and construction management services for a new library in the City of Half Moon Bay. The project included demolition of an existing 7,825-square-foot library and construction of a new 22,000-square-foot library. Planning for the new $24 million library involved extensive community engagement and outreach. The contemporary design includes a lobby; children’s area; study, teen and literacy areas; as well as a roof deck, courtyard and atrium. The project is a net-zero energy building (NZEB)–the first in San Mateo County. The new library also includes a large rooftop photovoltaic array and other energy-reducing building features.
The new Half Moon Bay Library, funded by the City of Half Moon Bay, the County of San Mateo and the San Mateo County Library Joint Powers Authority, serves the San Mateo Coastside communities and is the only library serving a 270-square-mile area.
