UVM – Stafford Hall Laboratory Renovation

The University of Vermont, Burlington, VT

Project Description:

This project included the interior renovation of approximately 6,000 sf of laboratory, office and associated support space located on the basement and first level of the Stafford Research Building on UVM’s main campus. The Stafford Research Building houses faculty offices, faculty research laboratories, classrooms, and learning laboratories.  Research is active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which required detailed coordination of building shutdowns and noisy or vibration-creating activities.

ReArch maintained clear and constant access through all hallways, stairwells, elevators, etc. throughout the duration of the project. One portion of the renovation was within a few feet of an extremely sensitive electron microscope and medical animal research labs.  These areas often had contradicting sensitivities to noise and disruption and the coordination required to complete the construction work was extensive.

College and Battery Renovations

40 College Street, Burlington, VT

Project Description:

ReArch Company served as the Construction Manager on the recent improvements and renovations to the upscale College & Battery Condominium complex in downtown Burlington.  The project consisted of replacing and/or repairing significant water damaged materials, renovations, and repairs to the exterior walkways, galleries, stairways, stairwells, canopies, and parking garage.  Arguably the most complex aspect of the management of this project was developing a detailed accessibility and phasing plan that provided the least possible amount of disruption to the Home Owner Association’s 75 members. The objective of the accessibility and phasing plan was to enable all homeowners to safely and efficiently access their units while keeping construction noise to a minimum.  Site Superintendent George Holcomb successfully managed all of the project’s fine details while also providing daily construction updates to a visually impaired homeowner so that she could safely navigate the construction site.  The project was highly successful and the Association was very pleased with the quality of work and the performance of ReArch’s construction management team.

ReArch Company was specifically selected by the Home Owner’s Association on a negotiated-basis at the recommendation of the Owner’s Representative, VIS Construction Consultants, due to our successful collaboration with them on the construction of the State of Vermont’s Agricultural Sciences Laboratory.

UVM – Clinical Simulation Center

The University of Vermont, Burlington, VT

Project Description:

The Clinical Simulation Center project was a 5,000 square foot renovation of an existing space in the Rowell Building at the University of Vermont’s Medical College. ReArch Company worked hand in hand with LavalleeBrensinger, the project architect, and Medical College faculty and staff to provide estimates and constructability reviews early in the process so that the University could achieve their desired results, both in the program as well as financially.  ReArch Company, led by Project Manager Josh Quinn, headed up the Value Engineering process along with the A/E team to provide cost saving solutions, detailed construction sequencing and site logistic plans, as well as bid package development and construction and warranty management.

The project required substantial Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) work to facilitate the installation of a facility that was designed to mimic real life Emergency Room situations.  That included installation of state-of-the-art audio/visual systems and sophisticated information technology that would replicate actual medical scenarios that students would face in hospitals.  As a result, all of the equipment and procedures that would be utilized in an actual hospital renovation were followed by the team, including the additional requirement that the immediately adjacent spaces would remain operational to Medical College students and staff throughout the duration of the project.  A substantial amount of planning went in to devising a schedule that would not only allow this fast track project to be completed on time for classes to reconvene in the fall, but that would also accommodate research and summer classes taking place next door.  That meant that sound, dust and other construction debris needed to be mitigated and that the safety (always our top concern) of the general public and construction personnel was always maintained.

ReArch Company was chosen for the project because of our proven track record of delivering outstanding end value and for working successfully with the University to deliver fast track projects in spaces that either needed to remain continuously operational or were immediately adjacent to spaces that remained operational throughout the construction process.

Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory

The University of Vermont, Burlington, VT

Project Description:

The University of Vermont is one of the premier research schools in the nation.  Its Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory allows its faculty and students to research and better understand how landforms transform over time, as well as to measure the age of certain formations.  Their previous lab – in existence since 1994 – was unfortunately destroyed in a fire.  When the decision was made to rebuild, the University chose ReArch to serve as Construction Manager of their new state-of-the-art research laboratory.

Being a part of the University, the laboratory is not only a research facility but an educational tool as well.  Therefore, classroom space was included in the design that features a complex mechanical system to support the lab’s health and safety requirements, including a variety of dedicated hood fans.  Additionally, special attention was paid to the “Clean Room” to ensure that the space was not contaminated by outside products, construction dust, or airborne materials.  To allow visitors to safely view the research being conducted within the lab, interior sealed windows were added to the space.

The job was successfully completed in the summer of 2008.  ReArch Company is proud to have been a part of creating such a useful educational tool for the University of Vermont, and in turn UVM was highly impressed at the level of professionalism and attention to detail that their Construction Manager provided.

UVM – Data Center

30 Community Drive, South Burlington, VT

Project Description:

The University of Vermont is one of the nation’s leading universities both for its research capabilities and its quality of student life.  Its nearly 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students matriculate on its classic tree lined New England university campus in Burlington, Vermont.

When the University decided to upgrade their Data Center they settled on Technology Park in South Burlington as the location, and ReArch Company as their Contractor.  UVM’s goal was to create one of New England’s fastest and most comprehensive data centers. ReArch’s managers capably drove the meticulous design work that was necessary to achieve that objective.

Working within an existing space ReArch was forced to make major HVAC renovations to accommodate all of the new equipment.  The Data Center is divided in to different work areas that include an oversized viewing screen with various wall mounted monitors, a large scale server room containing state-of-the-art processors and other equipment, and a mechanical room.  The 1,400 processors in the server room are so advanced that they have the ability to calculate in one day what a normal desktop would process in four years.  In addition, the storage capacity of the servers is five times the amount of all the printed work contained at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.  The ability of the Data Center to function smoothly and at the highest level of performance on a continuous basis is absolutely integral to the University and their staff and students.

Project Description:

Fletcher Allen Healthcare is one of New England’s leading hospitals as well as one of the country’s top medical education facilities.  They offer a comprehensive level of service for a variety of patient needs.  In 2003, Fletcher Allen chose ReArch Company to renovate a space at Technology Park for administrative offices.

In collaboration with architecture firm TruexCullins, ReArch Company managed the tenant fit-up for Fletcher Allen’s South Burlington offices.  In an effort to create a modern, bright and enjoyable workspace, ReArch Company created a unique floor plan that features curved stone walls, large rock boulder accents, and a landscaped stone island and gazing pool.

Completed in the winter of 2004, the open layout was designed to maximize natural daylight with its wide expanse of insulated windows and low wood dividers that create individual work areas without breaking up the space.  The 11,000 sq. ft. office renovation combines a creative design with quality construction to make for a successful project and satisfied owner.
