Windsor Village Apartments
The original Olde Windsor Village was constructed in the early 1800s as a state prison. Prison cells in the basement held an old wood pellet boiler and the windows and envelope were antiquated and leaky. Banwell Architects worked with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and the United States Forest Service to bring the historic building up to code and to meet egress requirements for the apartments.
Features of the project include:
- 3D modeling studies used to reduce visibility of solar hot water panels on the historic structure
- Upgraded envelope to improve comfort
- Window solutions for each section to maintain historic integrity
- Update finishes to improve décor
- Wood pellet boilers replaced with biomass system for energy and financial savings
- Rehabilitation of all electrical and mechanical systems for greater functionality
Residents of Windsor Village Apartments enjoy greater comfortable in their freshly renovated surroundings. Their investment in energy efficiency upgrades to their building and heating systems save them money annually and integrate seamlessly with the historic structure.
