The first major renovation of the historic Stockbridge Library, Museum and Archives since 1937 is moving ahead, now that Allegrone Construction Co. of Pittsfield has been awarded the $2.5 million contract for the project.

"Work is officially under way," said library director Katie O'Neil. A capital campaign for the massive reconstruction has raised more than half of its $3.2 million goal, she told The Eagle.

The library, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in August, is awaiting a decision from the state on its application for historic renovation tax credits, which could yield as much as $500,000 for qualified restoration expenses. The private fundraising campaign was led by a $250,000 gift from the Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick Trust.

Allegrone, with a long history of historic site renovations such as the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, was awarded the contract as the low bidder for the project, which was designed by Centerline Architects & Planners of Bennington, Vt.

Berkshire Athenaeum - Stone Number 1,516

p

Allegrone Masonry raises and lays the 1,516th and final stone into place at the historic Berkshire Athenaeum building in Pittsfield's Park Squre. 

p

Scaffolding has concealed the exterior of the Berkshire Athenaeum building for several months as Allegrone Masonry has worked carefully and diligently to repair the deteriorated stone facade.  The existing stone wall was labelled, inventoried, disassembled, and reinstalled from July 15, 2014 through October 25, 2014.  In this time, Allegrone Masonry laid 1,516 stones and placed by hand 123 yards of vertical, one sided, structurally reinforced concrete. 

u

Scaffolding will be removed this week, returning the historic building as a focal point of Park Square!  Work will continue elsewhere within the building through Spring 2015.

Destination Jewelry - craftsmanship, design, and history collide to birth the new home of McTeigue & McClelland Jewelers in Great Barrington

 mc2

The former Christian Science church, dating back to 1850, provides 7,500 sf for the new retail showroom and workshop of MCII.

The stunningly gorgeous and meticulously handcrafted jewelry of McTeigue and McClelland has left its iconic yellow cottage on Main Street in Great Barrington and relocated to a new icon just up the road.

“It all fell into place incredibly well,” says McTeigue. "It was a collaborative effort between our architect, Clark and Green, and contractor Allegrone. They brought the best of what they do.”

Allegrone in the News: A Step Up for Museum's Stairs

Empire State Plaza NY

Allegrone continues on the stairs leading from the Empire State Plaza to the New York State Museum.

 

Empire State Plaza

 

Albany

Workers are conducting maintenance on the State Museum grand staircase as part of a large-scale program this season in the Empire State Plaza area.

Other projects include elevator rehabilitation in the Corning Tower and escalator replacement in the Capitol.

The staircase work is required after maintenance was put off for many years, resulting in leaks and water damage.

Specific tasks include removing all of the granite steps from the grand staircase, storing them onsite, and then replacing all of the waterproofing membrane, flashings, and drainage systems within the grand staircase.

The granite steps will then be reset when the new waterproofing measures are complete.

Work also includes removing all exterior marble panels and replacing all the flashings.

The marble panels will then be reset and re-caulked.

Repairs will also be made to the masonry textured ceiling under the grand staircase over Madison Avenue.
