Summer Place Project Earns Team Award

Bridgeport, CT – Viking Construction’s work on Stamford’s Summer Place 55-plus affordable housing community was recognized by the Connecticut Building Congress as a Project Team Award winner.

The $12.1 million building replaced the Czescik Homes which suffered irreparable damage from Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

This challenging project included working on a very compact building site nestled next to occupied office buildings, complex excavation work and underpinning rebuild, and a tight completion schedule.

The five-story, 48-unit apartment building is now a stylish community with exceptional exterior spaces including a 1,500sf landscaped rooftop plaza with panoramic views of downtown Stamford, as well as a protected ground-level patio area.

Kenneth Boroson Architects designed the project under the direction of Charter Oak Communities (the Housing Authority of Stamford, property owner) and Inspirica, Inc., a Stamford-based community service provider.
