Winter Johnson Group: Company Celebrates Opening of Atlanta Library


Atlanta — Winter Johnson Group was proud to attend the recent grand opening of the Metropolitan Library of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System. The library, built by Winter Johnson Group, is a new 25,000-square-foot building targeted for LEED Silver Certification that replaces the Stewart-Lakewood branch.

An important part of the community, the Metropolitan Library provides much needed access to essential tools for lifelong learning and brings together diverse community members.

To connect the new structure with the location and community, Winter Johnson Group, in collaboration with Smith Dalia Architects, Craig Gaulden Davis, and ai3, worked with the owner, surrounding businesses, and civic organizations to create a new neighborhood landmark.

They also payed homage to a large church formerly located on the site by using reclaimed materials, such as the entry columns, tons of existing granite rubble, and stained glass pieces that are showcased within the new library.

Winter Johnson Group provided construction management services for the build of Metropolitan Library, after Fulton County voters passed the Library Bond Referendum which includes eight new libraries and two expanded libraries. This library is part of Phase I of the Library Building Program. Phase II will begin with many other branches beginning renovations.

Winter Johnson Group, a joint venture, is comprised of Winter Construction, a privately owned and operated Atlanta-based construction management and general contracting company, and Johnson Construction services, a minority-owned contracting company in Atlanta.
