Catalfumo awarded contract by Palm Beach County to renovate Okeechobee Branch Library
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Catalfumo Construction and Development Inc. has been awarded a contract by Palm Beach County for the renovation of the Okeechobee Branch Library at 5689 West Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach.
With a project cost of $2.1 million, construction for the Okeechobee Library is scheduled to begin mid-April and completion is expected in mid-September 2008.
The facility, which has approximately 17,000 square feet, will receive new casework, ceiling tiles, cabinetry and countertops, carpeting and other interior finishes. Additionally, the air-conditioning system chiller and air handlers will be replaced, and the electrical system will be updated and enhanced to meet the library’s current and future needs.
Catalfumo will be working with Hansen Professional Services, the architect selected by the County.
“Next on the schedule will be the Royal Palm Beach Library. We plan to begin work at that location in mid-June of this year. Work on the North County Regional Library is tentatively scheduled to commence in late summer,” said company founder and CEO Dan Catalfumo. Catalfumo also renovated the Loula V. York Branch Library in Pahokee in 2006 at a cost of $.9 million. The library received interior as well as exterior renovations.
Catalfumo has had a longstanding relationship with Palm Beach County. A sampling of completed projects to date include the Palm Beach County Governmental Center and the Palm Beach County Operations and Support Center, which is the nucleus for the County’s emergency and traffic departments. Furthermore, construction is halfway completed on the City Center civic complex that will house a new city hall, public library and photographic center.
“Understanding and being responsive to the County’s needs, as well as delivering projects on time and within budget, have strengthened the relationship we enjoy with our local government,” Catalfumo added.
