Witherell Awarded for Project Renew

The Nathaniel Witherell announced an award of $129,156 by Eversource Energy to the Town of Greenwich in recognition of the energy efficiencies incorporated into Project Renew Witherell. Project Renew has dramatically improved the infrastructure and environment at Nathaniel Witherell, increasing the number of private rooms from 26 to 64 as well as remodeling and decorating 87 resident rooms. Public space has been enhanced, including a new 4,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Center, new family reception areas, modernization of three elevators along with the addition of a new fourth elevator, and a new emergency generator, among many facility upgrades. Total construction costs were $27 million. The Friends of Nathaniel Witherell contributed $4.6 million, secured $4.5 million from the sale of historic rehab tax credits to Eversource Energy, and assisted with the State of Connecticut providing an additional $12 million over a 20-year period. read more...
