Bostwick Arms gets a facelift
Published 5:44 pm, Wednesday, January 30, 2013
The Bostwick Arms Condominium complex in New Milford has undergone a major renovation.
The project also stimulated the local economy as the work involved a local bank, as well as New Milford area contractors and vendors.
Financing was provided by the Savings Bank of Danbury as all six buildings were completely refaced with insulated vinyl siding.
With oversight by Newbert Roofing and Siding, the project included all new energy-efficient windows and storm doors, as well as new lights and mailboxes.
"This capital project at Bostwick Arms is the result of more than three years of planning, and work by the executive board and the association's management firm, Greenfield Management LLC," said association board president George McLaughlin. "I am pleased that we were able to use New Milford-area vendors and contractors exclusively."
Mr. McLaughlin said storm doors, cellar doors, windows and mailboxes were purchased from Ring's End; the lights came from Berkshire Lighting Gallery; the Danbury branch of Jim Waters Corp. supplied the siding; and U.S. Insulation in Bethel added new gutters to complete the buildings.
In addition, Arthur Howland & Associates engineered a new drainage system, which was installed by Circle Asphalt and Four Seasons Maintenance in Roxbury.
Trees hindering effective drainage, as well as making the units dark, were removed by Sunset Tree Service in Brookfield.
With the completion of the construction, the parking areas and sidewalks have been repaved by Circle Asphalt.
New landscaping is planned for the spring.
Bostwick Arms was built in 1968 by a local developer, the late Steve Pilla.
