Wohlsen Receives CBC First Place Award

LCB Senior Living, The Residence at Selleck’s Woods

Hamden, CT – Wohlsen Construction Company was recently awarded a Connecticut Building Congress (CBC) First-Place Project Team Award for its work at LCB Senior Living, The Residence at Selleck’s Woods.

The CBC recognizes “outstanding building projects that exemplify project team excellence and represent the best practices in teamwork by project owners, architects, engineers, constructors and trades.”

This project involved the adaptive reuse of an existing office building with a substantial addition, the relocation of the existing underground infrastructure that needed to remain live to service neighboring properties, and it was built adjacent to a conservation easement. Safety and coordination were paramount to keep adjacent businesses up and running during construction. Developed using a classic team effort on the part of the client, architect, and construction manager, the project passed all final inspections and approvals on the first try without a need for re-inspection.

The new community, featuring 105 apartments, common amenities, and outdoor areas, was constructed on schedule and on-budget.
