In conjunction with the development of a streetscape theme for the reconstruction of the Main Street (Route 44) area of downtown Winsted, BL Companies provided design services for Phase I and II improvements for the historic town green surrounded by Routes 44, 8, and 843. BL Companies prepared construction plans for submission to CTDOT District IV, while adhering to STEAP grant funding requirements. BL Companies provided contract documents and construction administration services that consisted in assisting the bidding phase, meetings; shop drawing reviews, weekly site visits and progress reports.
The park improvements consisted of new handicap accessible sidewalks, granite curbing, brick paver walks, and other amenities such as benches and granite bollards with a steel railing system surrounding the green. The overall design theme was concentrated around existing historic granite monuments and enhancing them with an interesting sidewalk pattern and decorative walk treatments. These enhancements were coordinated with the Main Street Enhancement project and STEAP committee, led by BL Companies, in an effort to provide a consistent theme within the community.
