Fitchburg – BOND, a building, civil, utility and energy construction firm, joined Fitchburg officials in celebrating the groundbreaking of the Fitchburg City Hall building renovation.
Design partner ICON Architecture and owner’s representative Colliers International joined the festivities.
Fitchburg City Hall is considered a local historic landmark and is listed in the Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System as the “Downtown Architecture of H. M. Francis, Fitchburg MA.” The exterior building will be restored to its original state with the interior being renovated to accommodate the complex functions of government.
The City Hall will be completely redesigned to accommodate 14 administrative departments including the office of the mayor. An adjacent building (formerly a bank) is being converted into a legislative building, housing the City Council chambers.
The building is also being recommended for listing on the National Register of Historical Places with the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
The renovation project is now underway and will be completed in late 2020.
