SeamonWhiteside selected as civil engineering and landscape architecture firm for Oakbrook Library

August 24, 2022

SeamonWhiteside (SW+), a full-service site design firm throughout the Carolinas, is completing Land Planning, Civil Engineering, and Landscape Architecture on the new Oakbrook Library at The Ashley River located at 2830 Bacons Bridge Road, Summerville, SC 29485. The groundbreaking ceremony occurred last week and the library is anticipated to open late 2023.

The Oakbrook Library is one of several new libraries coming to Dorchester County, with the other three located in downtown Summerville, North Charleston, and Ridgeville. The Oakbrook branch will be 20,000 square feet and conveniently located across from the new Ashley River Park.

“We are very honored to provide the civil engineering and landscape architecture services as part of the design team chosen for the new Dorchester County Oakbrook Library,” says Jennifer Palmer, Director of the SeamonWhiteside Summerville Office. “Located just steps away from the Ashley River Park, this will be a convenient and accessible resource for the community, adding tremendous value to Dorchester County and the Town of Summerville. This new library will be something for not only us but also for future generations to enjoy!”

SeamonWhiteside will work closely on this project with architecture and design firm McMillan Pazdan Smith to bring the master plan to a reality.

Many locals attended the groundbreaking last Thursday and expressed their excitement for the much-needed addition of a new library to the community.
