USC Doheny Memorial Library

USC Doheny Memorial Library

Doheny Library is a five-story, 1931 Northern Italian Romanesque-style building eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The historic, hand-painted ceiling in the reference room was painstakingly cleaned and retouched; while rich marbles, stained glass, travertine and iron fixtures were prudently protected throughout earthquake repair, structural strengthening and modernization work.


Preconstruction services on this project led to early completion within the provided budget.
