C.W. Driver Completes $15M Remodel of Whittier Library

C.W. Driver Companies has completed the remodel and improvement of the 39,000-square-foot Central Library in Whittier, CA. The $14.6 million project included a 35,000 square foot modernization to the existing building, a 4,300 square foot expansion, and a redo of the exterior and landscaping to create an updated look, while retaining the integrity of the library’s historical architecture.

Originally built in 1959, the Central Library has been a landmark of the local community and is home to the most requested and popular materials in Whittier, including internet access, Veterans Resource Center, passport processing and a variety of community programs and services.

“We were honored to partner with the city of Whittier in renovating this historic community landmark,” said C.W. Driver president, Karl Kreutziger. “Our relationship and history working with the city positioned us to deliver a state-of-the-art remodel and improvement project that will better serve the community for years to come.”
