VIA began working with the town of Westport, New York in 2012 to determine the feasibility of renovating their historic town office building or moving the municipal offices to a new location. The town decided to proceed with renovating the building in order to keep the town office centrally located and to preserve the building, listed on the National Register, as a functional and comfortable meeting place for the town. A state granted awarded in late 2014 propelled the project forward. Envelope improvements make the building much more comfortable for town employees and significantly more energy efficient. New life safety upgrades improve accessibility and brought the building into code compliance. The previously hidden curved ceiling on the main floor now adds to the building’s historic charm and new finishes throughout brighten the building’s interior. Exterior repairs and rooftop solar panels round out the renovation to make this nearly 100-year-old building relevant and useful for the future.
