UD Bookstore – Barnes & Noble
The University of Delaware Campus Bookstore, managed by Barnes & Noble, at 83 East Main Street, was designed for construction on a prominent gateway site on the edge of campus that would support the entire community, with a large courtyard offering direct access from both East Main and Academy Streets. A large four-story tower on the front of the new building acts as point of orientation connecting Academy and East Main. The building houses the UD Barnes & Noble Bookstore on the first two floors and the University’s Development Office on the third floor. A one-story building addition connects the new 3-story building to an existing 100-year old Georgian architectural-style brick building with frontage on East Main Street.
Landmark was selected as a subcontractor by the projects’ design build construction team. Our Survey Department staff provided various construction-phase services, including complex building and site construction layout, vertical steel and bolt layout for the four-story tower, site as-built survey, and set monuments to mark property corners.
