The Southern University John B. Cade Library was awarded a Title III grant to improve the student facility. The Dean of the library challenged CDI Solutions to develop a space that had energy, vibrant colors and inspired student interaction. The color scheme was chosen to coordinate with some existing auxiliary spaces and to develop a continuous and seamless design. The design developed strategies to help drive student interaction within the facility by creating a "one stop shop" for questions at the Ask Here desk, easily accessible computer stations to assist in navigating the library and student break-out areas for impromptu study sessions. Through the use of millwork, casework and graphic banners, CDI Solutions significantly reduced the overall cost of the project by avoiding major changes to the building structure. This strategy enabled the library to capture more spaces within the scope of work and get "more bang for their buck".
