    The FIU Green Library is the largest single construction contract in the 25 year history of FIU.  The center piece of the main campus, this expansion required fast tracked, phased construction to add 200,000 sq ft to the existing 70,000 sq ft library (by singh).  The eight story addition was added to the building in a carefully staged and sequenced manner that allowed the existing library to remain fully functional throughout construction. Upon request of the owner, the library has been designed to accommodate eight additional floors as expansion becomes necessary.


    Since the expansion of the library, MCHarry Associates has returned to the Green Library to remodel classrooms and office spaces as per the owner's request to meet their expanding needs.


    The FIU Library expansion has received the following awards:


    Unbuilt Design Award by the Miami Chapter of the AIA in 1996


    Craftsmanship Award for Precast Concrete and Glass & Glazing from the Construction Association of South Floridain 2000


    Excellence in Construction from Associated Contractors and Builders Gold Coast Chapter


    First Place in the Third Annual Architectural Showcase from the Florida Educational Facilities Planners Association
