ReArch Company worked closely with SMP Architects and the City of Lebanon on a 39,159 SF renovation to the Lebanon City Hall and Opera House. The project included multiple phases and remained continuously occupied throughout construction.
The ReArch team initiated Phase 1 of this exciting project by removing and replacing the outdated boilers, chillers, and two air handling units in the original Opera House space. Structural upgrades were completed on the existing steel roof, which included the addition of 8 new trusses in the Opera House attic. ReArch replaced all membrane roofing and associated copings and flashings and renovated a portion of the existing Opera House space to accommodate new IT offices and a computer room, which received new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The exterior masonry was repointed along with site improvements to enhance drainage. Additionally, new windows and spray foam insulation were added in all attic spaces and at the new IT Office and computer room to complete this phase.
Phase 2 of the project at the City hall included the demolition and rehabilitation of Levels 1,2, and 5, along with new windows and spray foam insulation. This phase incorporated a fit-up of level 1 for the City Council Chambers, associated meeting space, and level 2 & 5 for City offices. Waterproofing and sub-slab drainage were completed on level 2, and MEP systems were updated on all levels. ReArch delivered a seamless renovation of the existing facilities area at the basement level to enhance the integrity of the building and its spaces for the City of Lebanon.

ReArch was a key partner in the beginning phase of the project before we ever had a budget put together and built the estimate with the architect. We made a wise choice in selecting ReArch and we are planning to use them on other city projects.
ReArch has always been out in front of issues. If there is a problem and I call, they already have the options and answers for me.
ReArch Company has proven themselves to be a valuable asset on the preconstruction and construction phases of our $10M+ state office complex. Their value management exercises generated real value and cost savings to the City of St. Albans throughout preconstruction and construction. The project has been wonderfully managed, and they have been a great partner to the City of St. Albans on this project.
ReArch’s construction site is clean, organized and safe. They have made a number of proactive decisions for the betterment of the State’s project that we do not see other construction managers make. Job meetings are well organized and a pleasure to attend, they communicate well with all members of the team. Working with ReArch has been a true blessing.
I am not sure how our project could have gone better. I expect you know how rare it is to be able to make that statement.
The St. Albans State Office Building and City Parking Garage project has been an unqualified success, and a portion of that success is attributable to the dedication and hard work of the employees of ReArch Company.
