Colantonio Starts Work on Norwood’s New Public Works Facility

Holliston-based Colantonio, Inc. has begun demolition to make way for the New Public Works Facility in the heart of downtown Norwood. 

New construction and renovation work will span three locations.   The buildings in the main yard at 1 Lyman Place – the existing DPW garage, originally built in 1948, and the salt storage shed - will be demolished.  They will be replaced by a two-story, 10,800 square foot administration and employee facilities building; a metal 27,500 square foot vehicle maintenance/wash/storage building; and a wood-framed, 3,276 square foot salt storage structure.   The team expects to complete the work at Lyman Place by summer 2015.

Colantonio will upgrade the existing three-bay garage on Lenox Street with minor interior renovations, a new roof and new mechanical/electrical systems.  Site development work including grading, drainage, utilities, landscaping and parking, will wrap up by July 2014.

Clearing has begun on the Winter Street site where a 12,200 square-foot seasonal storage garage will be built by November 2014. That site will also receive new grading, drainage, utilities, landscaping and parking.
