Grafton Town Garage

Stevens & Associates completed a feasibility study, and provided engineering and architecture services for the design and construction of the Town of Grafton Highway Garage, which was heavily damaged in tropical storm Irene. The concept for the new building needed to address several programming requirements. The proposal was to reuse an abandoned gravel pit as the site for the new garage, salt shed, and sand stockpile. S&A coordinated with State of VT Wetland Division and Army Corps of Engineers regarding wetland concerns and devised mitigation strategies. S&A also worked with a Capital Budget Committee and highway department, providing solutions to meet program needs, such as providing on-site septic and water utilities. S&A provided designs for a pre-engineered steel building—including an interior office space that complied with non-combustible requirements—as well as a site design that met the Town’s needs. Stevens & Associates also oversaw the construction.
