On June 20th the 40,000 sf new state-of-the-art Community Health Center located on Main Street in Middletown was honored with an Award of Merit by the CT Green Building Council at the 2013 Annual Green Building Awards. The facility, built with recycled and regional materials, exemplifies sustainability and environmental stewardship. With the anticipated goal of LEED certification, the sustainable design solutions include a cultivated green roof to reduce heat island effect, a high performance building envelope, as well as an electric car charging station.
The team for the project included: Robert Olson + Associates (architect), PAC Group LLC (general contractor), Program Management Group (construction manager), and Suzanne Robinson and Tom Nichols 4 Elements Group (LEED consultant).
The Community Health Center provides comprehensive primary care services in medicine, dentistry, and behavioral health with a special commitment to the uninsured, underinsured and special populations. Situated in the North End of Middletown, a location close to many of their clients, the building has helped to revive Main Street.
