NV5 is the Owner’s Project Manager for the renovation of the historic City Hall in Chicopee, Massachusetts. This iconic 1871 structure, with its 147 foot tower, was modeled after the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974.
Currently in design development, the project will entail rehabilitation of the building’s brick, stonework, and masonry exterior as well as restoration of the ornate auditorium, which has been shuttered for several years. The exterior work includes restoration of significant, but deteriorating, stained glass windows and new windows in the City Hall Annex.
Interior work includes accessibility upgrades in the auditorium and other public spaces, the installation of a building automation system, full renovation of all bathrooms to bring them up to code, installation of a TV broadcast system in the auditorium for televised meetings, light interior renovations to all office spaces, as well as refurbishment of roof top units and replacement of other HVAC equipment.
