The University of Hartford wanted to consolidate the Mortensen and Allen Libraries in one building, while accommodating new technology and adding collaborative work spaces. The project, which creates the Harrison University Libraries complex, includes a three-story addition to the north side of Mortensen Library and renovations to the first floor of the existing building, which will become the new home for the Allen Library. SGH was the structural engineer for the project.
