Manchester, VT – PC Construction was recently awarded a $19 million construction project for Vermont’s newest premier boutique hotel, The Taconic Hotel, located in the heart of Manchester Village.
Nestled at the base of Mount Equinox, the four-story, 58,000sf hotel will include 78 guest rooms and combine country elegance and luxury accommodations to deliver a unique lodging experience. The rustic-inspired interior design, with its warm neutral colors, dark wood, and comfortable furnishing, will put travelers in a tranquil state as they soak in the majesty of the surrounding Taconic Mountain range. Additional features of this upscale resort will include three cottages with 11 guest rooms, a pavilion building, and a pool.
This latest construction project to land in Manchester will serve as a learning opportunity for area students. PC Construction invited 10 future architecture students from Burr and Burton Academy to the jobsite to learn about the project process from concept to completion. The South Burlington-based firm plans to continue visiting the class periodically to maximize the learning potential associated with an active construction project.
“It’s exciting to welcome the next generation of builders and architects to a live construction site to witness the work in action,” said Jay Fayette, senior vice president at PC Construction. “We are proud to play a significant role in the construction of Vermont’s newest resort, and to help these students explore a career path they may not have previously considered.”
In 2013, PC Construction completed work on Burlington’s first eco-friendly independent luxury hotel, Hotel Vermont. The resort was recently named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 12 Best New Hotels in the World.
