I have worked with Falcon Engineering on several complex projects for local governments and found the firm to be an excellent team member. Their engineers are knowledgeable, reasonable, and ethical; traits that are vitally important to their work. I can recommend Falcon without reservation.

Project Details

Project Description

Durham County’s Main Library, located in downtown Durham, underwent a major expansion and renovation. At 37 years old, this much needed transformation was the final step of the regional library plan implemented by the County. The library footprint was reconfigured for ease of use and enhanced visibility throughout the building. A prominent outdoor public plaza was also incorporated for programs and events. A technology center supports several activities including business training, cultural education, and teaching/networking. An expanded North Carolina Collection is also included. Falcon was selected to provide materials testing and special inspections during construction.
