Many people felt that the new entrance walkway needed a railing. While it is not required by code because that walk itself is ADA compliant, this adds comfort and a level of safety along the steep rise up from the St. Albans Road level. The metal is constructed to echo the color and look of the stair railing inside of the Smith Atrium entrance.
It was a complex build because the all metal construction had to be made in sections to match the unique curve of the walkway. It was fabricated by Levant Welding and Machine in a contract with Nickerson & O’Day. The installation is almost complete, with just a few elements to be finished.
Once again the Stewart Library Building Preservation Group is proud of the work our contractors have done to upgrade the building, respecting the historic nature of Corinna’s great architectural treasure.
