Boston – BOND Building Construction, Inc. (BOND Building) announced it is the recipient of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) New England Chapter Project Achievement Award for the major renovation project at the Fitchburg City Hall Campus.
BOND Building completed construction of this $20.3 million restoration in collaboration with Colliers Project Leaders, the owner’s project manager, and design partner ICON Architecture. The major renovation of the city hall building is part of Fitchburg’s ongoing downtown economic development that is aimed at revitalizing the local community.
In 2012, the building was declared unsafe for occupancy. Now, the exterior building has been fully restored to its original state with the interior renovated to accommodate 14 administrative departments, including the Office of the Mayor. An adjacent building that was formerly a bank, donated by Bank of America, has been converted into a legislative building and now houses the City Council Chambers. The renovation has transformed the building into a modern and efficient workplace for city administrators to better serve Fitchburg residents.
The firm received the award at the 2021 CMAA-NE Mark H. Hasso Project Excellence Program luncheon at the Omni Parker House in Boston.
