first_imgHanover, NH, February 9, 2005 – UK Architects, PC, has finalized a contract with the Sugar River Redevelopment Company, LLC, to be the Architect of Record for the rehabilitation of the Peterson and Wainshal Mill Buildings in Claremont, New Hampshire. UK Architects will be working in collaboration with the Design Collective, an architectural firm from Baltimore, Maryland. The Design Collective will provide master planning and schematic design services for the project, and UK Architects will be responsible for implementing the design and overseeing the construction. This professional collaboration brings expertise in the area of mill building rehabilitation, along with local knowledge and project oversight experience, to Sugar River Redevelopment and the City of Claremont.The Peterson and Wainshal Mill Buildings were originally part of the Monadnock Mills Company founded in 1846, and were used primarily for the manufacture of cotton goods. The Wainshal Building was constructed in 1853 and is one of the few remaining examples of mill construction with a monitor-style roof that admits light or air into the space. In 1915, the building was extended with a rear addition that approximately doubled its size. The Peterson Building was built in 1892, and at some later date, an upper story was added to it. The Monadnock Mills Company closed its mills in the 1930s, and the buildings, for the most part, have remained unused since that time. Both buildings are classic examples of New England brick mill construction and are integral to the architecture of Claremonts historic mill district.The developer, Sugar River Redevelopment Company of Burlington, Vermont, is tentatively proposing a mixed-use redevelopment of the two existing buildings into residential condominiums and commercial offices. The structures large windows, wood interior columns and beams, and brick walls lend themselves to interesting architectural interiors. The design team, the developer, and City officials will begin preliminary planning and design in the latter half of February.UK Architects, PC, led by principals Hunter Ulf, AIA, and Chris Kennedy, AIA, is located in Hanover, New Hampshire and provides architectural services that make a lasting difference in communities and the environment through their work with residential, commercial, and institutional clients. Founded in 1992, a sample of the firms recent projects include the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction, Vermont, the renovation of the Bridgman Building in downtown Hanover, New Hampshire, and the Billings Common Office Park in Wilder, Vermont.# # #Contact: M.

first_imgThe chorus of congressional voices calling for credit union regulatory relief grew louder this week with a letter to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) regarding the agency’s proposed rule on arbitration.Signed by 36 senators and 104 representatives, the letter calls for CFPB Director Richard Cordray to reconsider the agency’s recently proposed rule on arbitration, and examine and develop alternative proposals that foster consumer choice and preserve access to efficient dispute resolution.“Rather than giving consumers greater access to justice, the proposal will make it more difficult and more expensive for consumers to resolve disputes for service providers,” reads the letter, led by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.).“We appreciate the support of these 140 members of Congress, who recognize that rules, such as this, that are not narrowly tailored to address specific abuses, can actually harm consumers,” said Eli Joseph, CUNA deputy chief advocacy officer. “CUNA remains concerned that frivolous class action litigation harms credit unions and their members, and jeopardizes consumers’ ability to access the high-quality and affordable products that credit unions provide. continue reading ? 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
