Addition and renovations (5,900 SF), including the construction of a new stone terrace, first floor meeting and living space with residence space above. This project received LEED Platinum certification and an Efficiency Vermont Honor Award for Commercial Major Renovation.

Comments regarding the blower door test results:

“It is very rare that I inspect an existing or new construction building that has the attention given to air-leakage control work as is being done at the President’s House at Middlebury College. HP Cummings is one of the very few companies that has taken “ownership” for responsibility of this new trade in construction, Pressure Plane Integrity… HP Cummings has invested in equipment that is required for professionals in the air leakage-control trade. You have also invested in the education to create knowledgeable/competent crew leaders and technicians doing the air-leakage control work. I have watched and participated in your progress over the last decade.
It was a pleasure showing up at this job site and seeing the positive results of your investments.”

For over 30 years HP Cummings has worked on many improvements to the Woodstock Inn. We were selected for this very exciting project, which included exterior improvements, lobby and library renovations. Design/build MEP. The Inn now has a truly grand entrance and is one of the most picturesque inns in New England. Speaking of Dan Smith, Project Manager:

“On behalf of the Woodstock Inn & Resort, I would like to thank you for your tremendous efforts as Project Manager on the very successful completion of our major enhancement project within a very short 70-day window. When we put this project out to bid, we decided on the company we had the most confidence in, the company we felt could meet the goals of time and cost, the company we knew and knew us. HP Cummings was the right decision. From pre-planning through demolition to reconstruction and reopening, your extremely high quality of project management experience and efficiency was evident throughout every phase. Managing the stages of completion in overlap fashion worked very well due to Kevin Keith’s confident and calm manner of conducting the flow of several trades working together in synergy. The shared creative cooperation and respect was appreciated by your team and the Woodstock Inn & Resort team. The end result turned out even better than expected. Our trustees, employees, guests and most importantly our community are all excited about the enhancement that took our hotel from a country inn to a world class resort!”
