Library leaders are excited to share that Spangenberg Phillips Tice Architecture (SPT) out of Wichita Kansas has been hired to work on architectural plans for the library’s expansion and renovation. The Fremont City Council met on January 26 and approved hiring SPT; four other companies had submitted proposals.
Interim Library Director Laura England-Biggs is excited to work with SPT. “Moving forward in the next stage of our design process is an exciting one. SPT has some great ideas for us! And they have listened to our input from the initial meetings with remarkable results so far.” SPT Architecture will provide the architectural design and schematics of the expansion project. They will first work on a new exterior rendering before helping to finalize the interior of the project design. To do this work, they are taking into account needs from past space needs assessments and community surveys/input sessions.
They have previously worked on projects like the Valley Center Community Center & Library (Valley Center KS), Wichita Public Library and Wichita Public Schools.
