Bala Consulting Engineers provided engineering services for the renovations to the library which was built in the late 60’s.  The renovations include replacement of mechanical systems, roofing, windows and elevator.

Boyden Library received a complete renovation to create a new Academic Hub for Deerfield Academy.  The renovated library design features newly configured spaces with advanced technology areas, group study rooms, student carrels, and much needed classrooms while maintaining the atmosphere of a library with the presence of books and quiet study areas.

As part of the project, a new, 13,800 square foot, three-story addition was added and provided more space for the library’s growing collection, a new books and media area, children’s areas and computers for research purposes.
