Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Learning Commons Project

The $117 million Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Learning Commons at Salisbury University replaces an older and smaller library that was no longer able to accommodate the growing student population and an ever-expanding collection of educational materials. The university commissioned a new 221,000 square-foot structure that consolidates various academic programs and services and still leaves room to grow.

Lighting solutions provided by Inter-lux include the Gran Fuse Pendant by ALM (pictured left), which offers a distinctive, contemporary design and compliments the state-of-the-art features of the building. ALM products are designed to enhance large, public spaces, which makes the Gran Fuse an ideal choice for providing illumination and visual appeal.

Sufficient lighting is critical in an academic environment and ALM rose to the challenge with innovative and high-performance fixtures.
