The Auburn Avenue Research Library is the first library in the southeast dedicated to the study and research of African American culture and history. The project included a 2,800 square foot addition and renovation to the existing 56,00 square foot building resulting in a new auditorium, archive space, café and gift shop. Long Engineering, Inc. provided civil design, permitting services, and input on civil related LEED points. The project was certified LEED Gold. Long Engineering, Inc. designed an inexpensive stormwater management system despite very limited space on site, ADA parking and access to building, and improvements of sidewalks along Auburn Avenue where there are Olympic hexagonal pavers. The Auburn Avenue Research Library for African-American Culture and History received the 2017 Award of Excellence from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission.
