Company to take over construction at new Golden Triangle Library

A new contractor will complete construction of the Golden Triangle Branch Library.

On Oct. 22, 2019, the Fort Worth City Council terminated the contract with Denco CS Corp., which was the original construction company hired to build the library. Mark IV, which has an existing job-order contract with the City, is charged with completing the work. Construction should continue in about a month, after Mark IV does a thorough site evaluation. The move comes after Denco fell far behind schedule.

The City is committed to opening a high-quality facility at the site, located at 4264 Golden Triangle Blvd., in 2020.
