BBA’s 2011 Architectural Excellence Award honors Perry Hall at Champlain College

first_imgChamplain College,Champlain College’s Roger H Perry Hall is the winner of the 2011 Architectural Excellence Award presented by the Burlington Business Association. The Architectural Excellence Award is granted to a project contributing significantly to the physical or architectural quality of Burlington. Champlain College began their $12 million renovation of the historic Roger H Perry Hall in May of 2009. This project not only called for the complete renovation of the building but for some significant additions to the original structure and the land surrounding it. With approval for the project, Champlain went full speed ahead, finishing the restoration completely by late August of 2010, just in time to welcome the incoming students. The original structure was built in 1859 by Middlebury lawyer and diplomat Edward Phelps, and is one of only 11 houses in the South Willard Street Historic District that predates the Civil War. The building has served as home to several notable historic figures during its 152-year history, including an advisor to Presidents Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore, John J. Flynn, a local financier and founder of Chittenden Bank, and a doctor. It is named for Champlain College’s former president, Roger H. Perry, who retired in 2005. The building now houses the Advising and Registration Center, Admissions, Financial Aid, and serves as a general purpose Student Welcome Center. The original structure’s open staircase, ornate historic details and ground floor rooms were preserved and used for reception and conference spaces. Roger H. Perry Hall’s former library space now houses a collection of documents; photos and historic artifacts related to the Burlington Hill Section District. The restoration also included energy-efficient climate control systems, including a geothermal pump from Roger H. Perry Hall’s deep wells. The ultimate goal was to earn certification from The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. LEED recognizes performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. With the grand opening held on September 24, 2010, Champlain College was proud to announce that Roger H. Perry Hall was able to become a LEED certified building. Champlain College maintained the west lawn open space available for public use. Visitors will enjoy an original iron sundial created by Vermont sculptor Kate Pond, at the edge of an innovative wetland garden designed to absorb storm water runoff. Engleberth Construction of Colchester was the construction manager of the project.  The project employed local workers and contractors, and helped create jobs during a difficult economic time. Final nominees for the Architectural Excellence Award included Roger H Perry Hall, the Maltex Building on Pine Street, the Courtyard Burlington Harbor Marriott on Cherry Street, and Renovations to Howard Bank Block including the Hinds Lofts, 88 King and Farrell Residences (within St. Paul, King, Main and Pine streets). The Burlington Business Association has over 200 member businesses with the majority being located in Burlington. The Association and its members work to promote the economic vitality of Burlington.last_img read more
