Vermont State Employees Credit Union

Client:   Vermont State Employees Credit Union
Location:   Rutland, VT
Delivery Method:  Lump Sum
Size: 4,300 ft2
Year Completed:   November, 2011
Value: $2,000,000
LEED:  GOLD Certified
Architect:   Gossens Bachman Architects

VSECU is a 4,300 square foot wood framed bank branch, office and
conference space, located in Rutland, VT. The project was certified as
LEED Gold. The building was designed for efficiency.

It has a high end mechanical, controls, electrical system, and was designed with triple-pane windows for plenty of natural light. Russell contracted with VSECU
after successfully competing in the hard bid process. The project was
substantially over budget, which required a great deal of Value Engineering (VE).

We worked very closely with the architect and other consultants to provide
over 30% of the contract cost in VE items to the Owner without sacrificing
quality, nor LEED points to the project.

Russell to build Town of Sunderland’s first Town Hall

The town of Sunderland has been working for nearly 30 years to make their vision of having a Town Hall a reality.
