Park House Renovations

Rochester, Vermont

Project Type: Housing

H.P. Cummings Construction Company, in collaboration with architect Vermont Integrated Architecture, successfully completed the Park House Renovations project for the Rochester Community Care Home, Inc. Park House, located in the historic building that was once the Rochester Inn, is a 16-resident living facility in Rochester, Vermont.

The renovations undertaken for this project aimed to enhance the safety, comfort, and functionality of the building. A sprinkler system was installed to ensure fire protection throughout the facility, and a kitchen hood was added to improve ventilation and cooking safety. Extensive air sealing measures and insulation were implemented to enhance energy efficiency and create a comfortable living environment. New windows were installed, including repairs to the attic windows, addressing both aesthetic and performance concerns. Additionally, structural reinforcement was carried out to ensure the integrity of the entire building.

To improve heating and energy efficiency, split unit heat pumps were installed in each living unit. These units provide both heating and cooling capabilities, offering personalized comfort to the residents. An air exchange water heater was also incorporated to supplement the existing heating system and provide efficient hot water supply.

The project involved reconfiguring the upstairs floor plan to accommodate five bathrooms and enclose existing bathrooms within individual living units. This redesign aimed to enhance privacy and convenience for the residents, creating a more comfortable living environment.

H.P. Cummings Construction Company worked closely with Rochester Community Care Home, Inc. and Vermont Integrated Architecture to ensure that the Park House Renovations project met the unique needs of the facility and its residents. By combining expertise in construction management and architectural design, we successfully transformed the historic building into a modern, safe, and comfortable living facility.

We are proud to have been part of this project, which supports the mission of Rochester Community Care Home, Inc. to provide exceptional care and living accommodations for the residents of Park House. H.P. Cummings Construction Company remains committed to delivering high-quality construction projects that contribute to the well-being and vitality of the communities we serve.
