Located outside downtown Renton, the new Library has become a beacon for the town, taking its design cues from Renton’s rich history with Boeing and other large industrial companies. CZ|DS was responsible for furniture procurement and specification for the building and worked with the architect and KCLS project manager to select furnishings that embraced the aeronautical nature of the building while infusing the industrial space with light, color, and texture that celebrate human activity. We worked closely with KCLS stakeholders to make sure that all specified furniture met strict district standards including expanded weight limits on seating, extended warranties on all products, and stringent fabric specifications. CZ|DS also assisted with final design selections for the custom carpet throughout the building.
