first_imgHanover, NH, February 9, 2005 – UK Architects, PC, has finalized a contract with the Sugar River Redevelopment Company, LLC, to be the Architect of Record for the rehabilitation of the Peterson and Wainshal Mill Buildings in Claremont, New Hampshire. UK Architects will be working in collaboration with the Design Collective, an architectural firm from Baltimore, Maryland. The Design Collective will provide master planning and schematic design services for the project, and UK Architects will be responsible for implementing the design and overseeing the construction. This professional collaboration brings expertise in the area of mill building rehabilitation, along with local knowledge and project oversight experience, to Sugar River Redevelopment and the City of Claremont.The Peterson and Wainshal Mill Buildings were originally part of the Monadnock Mills Company founded in 1846, and were used primarily for the manufacture of cotton goods. The Wainshal Building was constructed in 1853 and is one of the few remaining examples of mill construction with a monitor-style roof that admits light or air into the space. In 1915, the building was extended with a rear addition that approximately doubled its size. The Peterson Building was built in 1892, and at some later date, an upper story was added to it. The Monadnock Mills Company closed its mills in the 1930s, and the buildings, for the most part, have remained unused since that time. Both buildings are classic examples of New England brick mill construction and are integral to the architecture of Claremonts historic mill district.The developer, Sugar River Redevelopment Company of Burlington, Vermont, is tentatively proposing a mixed-use redevelopment of the two existing buildings into residential condominiums and commercial offices. The structures large windows, wood interior columns and beams, and brick walls lend themselves to interesting architectural interiors. The design team, the developer, and City officials will begin preliminary planning and design in the latter half of February.UK Architects, PC, led by principals Hunter Ulf, AIA, and Chris Kennedy, AIA, is located in Hanover, New Hampshire and provides architectural services that make a lasting difference in communities and the environment through their work with residential, commercial, and institutional clients. Founded in 1992, a sample of the firms recent projects include the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction, Vermont, the renovation of the Bridgman Building in downtown Hanover, New Hampshire, and the Billings Common Office Park in Wilder, Vermont.# # #Contact: M.

first_img(REUTERS)-Burnley struck either side of halftime with headers from Jeff Hendrick and Michael Keane to claim a 2-0 Premier League home win over Watford on Monday in the first top-flight meeting of the two clubs.Forward Hendrick broke the deadlock before defender Keane scored to lift the Clarets into 13th spot where they joined five clubs on seven points from six games, including Watford and champions Leicester City who they trail on goal difference.Steven Defour laid on both goals with Hendrick heading home his corner in the 38th minute and Keane rising to nod in the winger’s left wing cross five minutes into the second half.Belgian international Defour was man of the match with Keane and manager Sean Dyche saying he gave Burnley extra quality.“He’s played brilliantly ever since he came into the team, you can see the quality he’s got,” said Keane.Dyche, a former Watford player and manager, said Burnley had worked hard to sign Defour, who is closing in on 50 caps, for a club record 8 million pounds ($10.38 million)in August.“His quality rubs off on others, he’s got a bit more of an assured manner in possession,” said Dyche.Watford were aiming for a third straight league win but could not find the form that helped them comfortably beat Manchester United 3-1 and West Ham United 4-2.Burnley defended well, in contrast to Watford’s poor marking at set pieces, and kept Etienne Capoue and captain Troy Deeney, who forced a fine point-blank save from Heaton, in check.“We got bullied to a man all over the pitch,” a disappointed Deeney said. “Burnley set up and we couldn’t handle it.“We played so well against Manchester United recently but it never really looked like it was going to happen.”last_img read more
