More than 35 years ago, the roots of Neagley & Chase Construction took hold during the transformation of several of the prominent structures on the Shelburne Farms campus.
Campus-wide infrastructure upgrades and three award-winning Historic Preservation projects: The Shelburne House, The Farm Barn and The Breeding Barn, spanned several years and focused on both the building’s immediate needs, as well as future campus plans. The primary focus on structural repairs including the restoration of exterior finishes and windows, and roof replacement ensured that the buildings would march forward in good repair. The secondary focus on interior renovations achieved modernized facilities that transformed the campus into the Educational Center for Sustainability that it is today. This preservation work breathed new life into the campus.
On a recent tour of the Shelburne Community Center & Library project, we were reminded of the importance of these preservation efforts through a lens of sustainability. The Neoclassical Revival Historic Town Hall was renovated during the 10-month long project, ensuring not only a warm and dry gathering place for the community, but again breathing new life and possibilities into the Town Center’s gathering space.
Today, NCC prides itself on being leaders in high-performance construction techniques and technologies. We partner with some of the most talented and sustainably-focused Design Teams in the region and are consistently challenging ourselves to learn and improve on the most advanced energy efficiency methods for new construction; but it is still so satisfying to deliver a truly sustainable project while returning to our roots of craftsmanship and historic preservation.
