Health Sciences Library at
Nassau University Medical Center

2201 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY
Client: Nassau University Medical Center
Architect: Ehasz Giacalone Architects
Size: 12,000 s.f.
Cost: $700,000
Stalco renovated The Peter W. Addiego Health Sciences Library at the Nassau University Medical Center. The two-story, 12,000-sq.ft. library features an improved layout, energy-efficient building systems, and new interior finishes. Stalco demolished the pre-existing interiors and construct new interiors, an MEPS infrastructure, computer and telecommunications cabling, and a security system.
The first floor houses a checkout counter, a lounge area for eight people, 24 individual study stations, a librarian’s office, and restrooms. The second floor features an open shelving section, four study group rooms that will accommodate up to six people, and two conference rooms designed for groups of up to 12 and 20, respectively. Both the study group and conference rooms are enclosed with modular Steelcase glass wall systems to eliminate a noise impact. They are equipped with interactive white boards as well as video conferencing and remote learning capabilities.
The second floor features a large opening in the floor, which creates the library’s atrium. Stalco will replace the handrails around the atrium, as well as along the stair leading to the second floor, with a glass and brushed aluminum railing system.
The new finishes include acoustical tile and drywall soffit ceilings, Shaw Floors carpet flooring, fabric and vinyl wallcoverings, new millwork shelving, refurbished wooden book stacks, and wall and floor porcelain tiles in the bathrooms. The new sprinkler and HVAC systems match the revised ceiling and floor layouts of the renovated library. The space features energy-efficient lighting fixtures.
Stalco installed new air-conditioning equipment on the building’s roof, which required reinforcing the roof structure with two 10-foot steel beams and connecting steel channel members.
