CAPE MAY COUNTY

NEW SEA ISLE LIBRARY
NEW LEED SILVER BUILDING ADDITIONS

COMPLETION DATE: Fall 2010
CONSTRUCTION VALUE: $6M
PROJECT AREA: 13,583 SF

The County of Cape May hired Settembrino Architects as their LEED Consultant for the County's first LEED Silver Certified Building. As the newest addition to the County Library System, the 13,583 square foot Sea Isle City Library Branch, located directly on the Bay, provides not only a much needed library space, but a community meeting center as well. The design team included many sustainable innovations in the design including: a geothermal heating and cooling system, native vegetation and xeriscape (no watering required) landscaping, photovoltaic panels, high SRI roofs, recycling centers, fluorescent lighting and floor to ceiling glass for expansive views.
