The State of Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services hired Wiemann Lamphere Architects to provide architectural and engineering services for the HVAC renovations at the Brattleboro State Office Building in Brattleboro, Vermont.
The Brattleboro State Office Building was built in 1978 and designed with an open-return HVAC system. The building houses the Departments of Labor, Health, Human Services, and Department of Economic Services & Family Services. These departments have a need for private offices and clinic space. Over the years, partitions have been added throughout the building to meet those needs, and as a result, the original HVAC system is ineffective.
Architectural services were needed to address tenant space needs including additional private office space, private clinic rooms, shared large conference space, downsizing and locating staff lounge space within departments, file storage with capability to be converted to future office space, and main lobby improvements; structural analysis of the current file storage area on the second floor.
The building is currently out to bid and the occupants will be relocated to another site while construction is being completed.
