The project was the complete restoration of a 1925 Art Deco building and circa 1860’s adjacent wood frame annex.
The building functions as an office space for Green Mountain Power plus two other energy related entities: Efficiency Vermont and Neighborworks. It also includes space for rotating educational displays and a conference room for energy related events.
Tours of the energy efficient equipment, such as the rooftop solar displays and air to air heat pumps with bio-diesel backup boiler, will be regular events.
New equipment includes a three stop elevator and a complete HVAC and electrical retrofit with LED lighting on DC power. Insulation goes well beyond code requirements and windows are triple glazed fiberglass.
