Award-Winning Project

Queens Library Cambria Heights Chamber of Commerce Award Winner

Known for its fossils, Cambria Heights – named after the “Cambrian” Era – digs up a new gem with the renovation of a new 4,000 square foot teen center. Located in a small town in Eastern Queens, the Cambria Heights Community Library has completed work on renovating unfinished basement space into a beautiful teen center which also contains a public assembly auditorium and a recording studio.

The center features a vibrant colorful interior, modern lighting design and individual climate control for each section of the space. EP Engineering was responsible for design of all MEP systems for the renovation. This is another successful award winning MEP library project delivered by our firm, receiving a Queens Chamber of Commerce building award.
