Skyline Hills Library
San Diego, California

The original Skyline Hills Library was small and outdated as the community around it grew.  The new library replaces the former to serve this dynamic neighborhood.  Built as a model for future construction, the new Skyline Hills Library opened in 2016 as one of the most modern and efficient buildings in the City of San Diego as a LEED Silver structure. The single-story, 15,000-square-foot facility was designed to address the needs of the Skyline Hills and Paradise Hills communities. A large community room and kitchen provide space for educational and cultural events throughout the year.

The $9.3 million project was awarded to the design-build team of NTD Architecture / Barnhardt-Reese.  The project was awarded the APWA San Diego and Imperial Chapter Project of the Year, Unique Special Merit Award from AGC and National Award of Merit from the Design-Build Institute of America.  Geocon performed the geotechnical investigation and Phase 1 environmental site assessment.

Interesting Fact: The San Diego Public Library, established in 1882, includes the main library downtown and 35 branch libraries serving 6 million visitors annually.
