ReArch Company was selected by the Town of Waterbury as the Construction Manager to renovate the existing library to include new municipal offices, an expanded library and meeting rooms, the historical society, and space for a welcome center and historical displays.
The previous library was located in the ‘Janes House’, donated to the community in 1915 by Dr. Henry Janes, a prominent doctor on the Civil War battlefields. The building has local and statewide historical significance so preserving it was a top priority of the Town of Waterbury. The new space was transformed into the Municipal Offices and Historical Society while the back addition made way for the newly expanded Library.

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.
