The historic house will go through a multi-phase restoration in the coming years.


PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The first phase of the restoration of the Springside House is slated to begin this spring.

The city awarded Allegrone Construction a $212,000 contract to fix the foundation, a portion of the roof, and drainage controls. The construction will start in the spring, addressing the most immediate needs to preserve the building.

"The foundation had been compromised for a number of reasons, it is old, some of the brick is deteriorating. But more so, a lot of the grouts and joints and mortar is deteriorating because of improper drainage as it comes off the roof. It sort of splashed back because there aren't good gutters and all of the water just sticks around the foundation," said Parks and Open Space Manager Jim McGrath.

Allegrone will be putting in new gutters and then run piping underground to a dry well. That will prevent pooling of water on the foundation. Allegrone will also be fixing the foundation of the mansion.
