Project Overview

The $100 million redevelopment of Waterbury’s 100-acre state office complex, the State of Vermont’s largest capital project, was undertaken due to extensive flood damage from Tropical Storm Irene.

Work included de-construction of 355,000 square feet of flood-damaged structures and construction of a new 86,000-square-foot office building and 20,000-square-foot central plant and maintenance facility with wood-fired biomass boilers. Also included were more than 100,000 square feet of historic renovations to 13 core buildings originally constructed in the 1890s. Future flood prevention measures were incorporated into all new and existing facilities, including elevating the structures to above the 500-year flood level. Work also included extensive site infrastructure.

PC’s Special Projects group contributed to the overall project with the completion of the finish carpentry work in the historic core and the structural wood framing.
