Eagle Pass Library
Eagle Pass, Texas
In 2008, the City of Eagle Pass completed a feasibility study of the historic building. The purpose of the report was to describe the general conditions of the building with recommendations for rehabilitation and modifications necessary to allow the City of Eagle Pass to bring the facility into compliance with ADA and life safety regulations.
In 2013, Architexas was hired to design an addition to the historic structure that would contain the elevator, fire stair and ADA compliant restrooms. The addition had to be compatible with the massing, size and scale of the historic building without compromising the historic integrity of the property. A revised parking scheme and a new accessible ramped entry are planned for the back of the building. Upgrades are currently planned for the MEP systems in the existing building as well as restoration of some of the interior spaces and finishes.
Construction documents were completed in 2014 and construction is scheduled to last until the fall of 2016.
