The MacOdrum Library at Carleton University in Ottawa received a 2015 Ontario Library Association (OLA) Library Building Award for its redesign by Diamond Schmitt Architects (DSAI). 

DSAI partnered with Edward J. Cuhaci and Associates Architects to renew the 1960s-era building. The architectural team added 6875 m (74,000 sf) of new space and 3252 m (35,000 sf) of renovated area. Nine new reading rooms were added, as well as a helical mahogany staircase. Innovative study features include a video gaming lab, three-dimensional (3-D) printers, interactive study rooms with large, touch screen monitors, and two treadmills with desks attached so students can exercise while they study.

The new parking structure needed to blend into the surrounding area while mitigating stormwater runoff concerns. In close collaboration with the City of Dallas, the design team decided to use a natural, permeable surface capable of withstanding heavy parking lot traffic. After comparing the various products available, the design team chose tan-colored NDS EZ Roll Gravel Pavers for their strength, durability and ease of installation.
