10 Middle Street, Bridgeport Project Receives Award by the Connecticut Business Building Congress

Babbidge recently received first place award in the “Commercial Industrial (under $10 million)” category by the Connecticut Building Congress Project Team Awards. This complex project involved upgrading the facade of a prominent 18-story building in downtown Bridgeport, while minimizing costs, impacts to tenants and duration of the work. The Babbidge team, led by Kate Bowman, project manager, planned and choreographed all the sequential and concurrent steps necessary for the success of this project. Hoffman Architects collaborated with Babbidge to design a replacement window system that reduced previous solar glare and eliminated air infiltration from the obsolete 1970’s single-glazed panels. 

We are honored to receive this recognition from the Connecticut Building Congress and thank our partners and subcontractors for the integral roles they played in the overall successful completion of this landmark project.

Svigals + Partners and Babbidge Construction Make Improvements at Camp Mountain Laurel

Svigals + Partners and Babbidge Construction employees work together on facility improvements

A crew of more than 30 volunteers helped prepare campers for a post-pandemic summer by making improvements at Camp Mountain Laurel, where summer day camp activities organized by Hamden/North Haven YMCA’s will soon commence.

This year’s team consisting of SvigaIs + Partners and Babbidge Construction is the largest in the two-year history of making enhancements at the 20-acre camp. In sprucing up the property, the volunteers tackled painting, power-washing, light landscaping and gardening, and more. The designers also created some new features for the site, including colorful game tables and a new rock garden at the entrance, adding to the camp’s offerings for kids of all abilities aged 3 to 15, and ensuring safe, fun and exciting experiences. 

“Building on the safety and success we experienced last year at the height of Covid, we are thrilled to reopen the camp for summer 2021,” said Erin Kelly, interim director of Hamden/North Haven YMCA. “We’re enormously grateful for the volunteer work that Svigals + Partners and Babbidge Construction are contributing to expand our capacity. Their efforts will ensure that each of our campers will enjoy all the great fun our camp offers in safe and welcoming environments, indoors and out.”
