City Hall Renovation

St. Albans, VT

The St. Albans City Hall was constructed in 1895 and is a two-story wood framed structure with single story gymnasium attached. The building has seen very limited improvements since it was constructed. In 2014, the City residents voted to approve a major renovation of this building, which includes a new City Clerk’s office with larger vault, handicap accessibility, the installation of two elevators and general architectural, mechanical and electrical improvements. Site improvements include reconstruction of the rear parking area, front steps and new water and sewer utilities. Cross Consulting Engineers was retained by Arnold and Scangas Architects, the Project Manager, to prepare the design for the civil and structural portions of this project, as well as to apply for the necessary utility permits. This project commenced construction in May of 2015.

Farrell Distributing

South Burlington

Farrell Distributing Corporation is a well established beverage distribution company with facilities in South Burlington and Rutland Vermont. Their South Burlington facility was constructed in the 1970’s and consists of approximately 130,000 SF of warehouse, offices and cold storage. In 2014, Farrell Distributing contacted Cross Consulting Engineers for assistance with a major renovation and expansion. Farrell Distributing needed indoor truck parking facilities so that their beverage trucks could be loaded in the evening and parked indoors over night during the winter so the beverages would not freeze. They also needed additional office space and a much larger cold environment warehouse for beverage storage.

Cross Consulting Engineers designed a 25,000 SF indoor truck parking facility which accommodates 18 side load beverage trucks and three loading docks. We also renovated their existing loading docks on the front of the building into nine exterior loading docks instead of interior docks. Previously, Farrell Distributing backed their tractor trailer trucks into the building to internal docks. The tractor trailer trucks were too long to completely fit within the building.

In order to add additional office space, a second floor above the former indoor loading area was designed. This second floor is constructed out of structural steel with concrete deck and is accessed by three stairways and a new elevator. Cross Consulting Engineers performed all architectural and structural design and acted as Project Manager for this $8,500,000 project. Construction started in July of 2015.

Georgia Industrial Development Water Plant Upgrade

Georgia, VT

The Georgia Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) is a nonprofit corporation that developed the Georgia Regional Dairy Industrial Park. The Park currently has three tenants and a potable water treatment plant that was constructed in the mid 1980’s. The water plant takes water from Lake Arrowhead, filters and chlorinates it, and provides potable water to the three industries. The plant also provides fire protection through a separate water main with diesel fire pump. The water plant equipment had exceeded its useful life and needed to be replaced in order to provide a dependable long term source of water for the industries in the park.

Cross Consulting Engineers was retained by GIDC to design an upgrade to the water plant. Cross Consulting Engineers, in conjunction with Otter Creek Engineering, designed a system of new filters, new pumps and variable speed controls which eliminated two large storage tanks that were housed within the building. During Phase I of this project, a new outdoor raw water storage lagoon was constructed to supplement the original two lagoons. The project involved raising a portion of the ceiling within the building to accommodate the new filters as well as mechanical and electrical upgrades. This $1,900,000 project commenced construction in 2015.

Another new parking area is proposed east of the relocated Crest Road. The redevelopment and expansion of parking is in response to the needs of the visitors and employees and to provide more direct access to the various buildings on the campus.
