Middletown, CT

Robert Olson + Associates

As Construction Manager, Dimeo was chosen for this multi-phased, intensive restoration and reconstruction project for the Memorial Chapel & ’92 Theatre. Work involved comprehensive exterior restorations, including patching, cleaning, and replication/replacement of brownstone, new slate roofs and spires, restoration of the stained glass windows, all new gutters, copper flashing and leaders, and a lightening protection system. The interior spaces were enhanced to accommodate current audio/visual technologies, restore and expand the upper balcony of the chapel, a new box office, and patron amenities. Both facilities were upgraded to provide complete accessibility to all levels including elevators to the Chapel balcony, new restrooms, and new entrances with full accessibility as well as full upgrades to MEP and life/safety systems.
