Smith College Dewey House

Historic Dewey House (c. 1827) at Smith College needed significant upgrades. After completing an initial feasibility study, Laura Fitch was asked to complete full services for office improvements, envelope repairs and insulation, as well as a new wheelchair lift. Before and after blower door and infrared testing indicated we had achieved a 65% reduction in air infiltration. That was the end of problematic ice dams as well!

This project received a 2013 Historic Preservation Award from the Northampton Historical Commission.
