Waitsfield United Church of Christ and Village Meeting House

wvmh cur 1

The Village Metting House desires to renovate and expand the Waitsfield United Church of Christ facility to meet the long-term needs of the residents of the Mad River Valley. The Village Meeting House / Waitsfield United Church of Christ has identified some critical building needs, including flood proofing, life safety improvements, ADA / accessibility improvements, energy performance improvements and modernization of community spaces and the community kitchen.

The renovation of the building will include stabilizing and flood proofing the basement, and all mechanical and electrical system components will be removed from the basement. A new, more efficient mechanical system will be located above the 100-year flood plain. This, in addition to the other critical building needs, will be accomplished by removing non-historic additions, and extending the single, unified gabled addition. The lower floor community spaces and existing back wing will be reconfigured, and insulation will be added to improve energy performance of these regularly used community spaces.
