The 17-unit Algiers Village Housing project in Guiford is nearing completion, with construction set to finish this summer. Owned and developed by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, the new construction will house income eligible tenants. Stevens & Associates worked with Duncan Wisniewski Architecture, providing civil and structural engineering for the project.
The project site was originally classified as a brownfield due to a small amount of contamination from previous uses. The nonprofit group Friends of Algiers, which owns and is renovating the Guilford General Store, held the property and restored it to health before selling it to WWHT for development.
Stevens & Associates’ involvement in this project coincided with our work on the Algiers waterline project, which extended a waterline from Brattleboro to the Algiers village area. The new housing would not have been possible without the added waterline.
