CHA has been selected to serve as owner’s representative/construction manager for the restoration of City Hall in Saratoga Springs, New York. This historic building has been faithfully serving the City since the late 1800s, but needs restoration and revitalization to become a functional municipal building for the 21st century. This exciting project win showcases the teamwork and synergy of CHA and its subsidiary companies to deliver exceptional value to clients. Staff from CHA Consulting, Daedalus Projects, and CHA Tech Services teamed up to pursue this opportunity.
The original 1871 building was struck by lightning in August 2018, resulting in smoke, fire and water damage that has kept this landmark closed for the past year. With misfortune, however, comes opportunity. As the first major renovation this 68,000 sq. ft. building will see in more than 50 years, this project will restore the facility and also extensively update its plumbing, heating and cooling, and electrical systems, enhance information technology and security, and add new court offices, an elevator, and public meeting spaces. The restoration of the basement and first floor is expected to be completed by the end of the year, with the completed restoration of the second floor and third-floor music hall in the spring of 2020.
This successful effort serves as a model of our firm’s unique ability to tap into each other’s strengths to pursue contracts and clients that we could have previously passed up. We are excited to see further synergies between all the CHA Companies, including recent acquisitions, Wolverton & Associates and JBS Project Management, as well as CHA Architecture, CHA Tech Services, CHA Canada, Daedalus Projects, Novara GeoSolutions, and American Fire. Together we are a stronger, more capable team.
