Waterbury State Office Complex Earns Two Awards

Last night, the team of ArchiCo, Freeman Construction and the State of Vermont accepted a Best Builders Award from the Associated General Contractors of Vermont for the Waterbury State Office Complex project. Completed earlier this year, the $100 million redevelopment project, which is the largest capital project ever undertaken by the State of Vermont, was a critical step in revitalizing the Town of Waterbury after the destruction caused by Tropical Storm Irene. The project was also selected by Engineering News-Record (ENR) to receive a 2016 Merit Award in the Government/Public category in the New England region. The award will be formally presented on December 8 in Boston, Massachusetts.

ArchiCo is a company that we can rely on. We often have to react to customer needs quickly and we know that ArchiCo will assist us even at a moment’s notice. It’s always a pleasure to cooperate with them.

We began work on the Complex in August of 2013, which included a new 86,000-square-foot office building, a new 20,000-square-foot central plant and maintenance facility, and new site infrastructure as well as the historic renovation of the original 13 core buildings comprising 115,000-square-feet.

Buildings were constructed six inches above the 500-year flood mark and specialized foundations were used to protect against future flooding. The complex is significantly more efficient with a new central plant and maintenance facility housing two wood-fired biomass boilers using 25 percent less energy.

You are absolutely right! I have cooperated with this architecture company many times and each design project they delivered was outstanding.
