Forest Center at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park

Woodstock, Vermont

Project Type: Education, Green Building and Historic
  • OWNER: National Park Service
  • ARCHITECT: Smith, Alvarez, Sienkiewycz, Architects
  • DELIVERY METHOD: CM

The construction of the Forest Center allowed for the owner to arrange for the dimensional and finish material lumber to be cut and rough sawn on-site. The lumber was sent out to be kiln-dried and then milled on-site. We also installed solar panels and biomass boilers to make the building more energy-efficient.

As a result of our hard work, the project received a LEED Platinum certification. The Forest Center was awarded Honorable Mention (second place, national competition) by the Forest Stewardship Council US, Minneapolis, MN.  It also won an Efficiency Vermont Better Buildings by Design Merit Award (New Construction).

“I just wanted to say how pleased the national park is with the results of the recent work in the Forest Center. Thank you for your patient, focus and steadfast commitment to the success of this project and the beautifully built building we are so proud of.”
– Rolf Diamant, Superintendent, US Dept. of the Interior, National Park Service
