Government Center

Orange County

The Orange County Government center is one of the most iconic buildings in Orange county. Sitting in the historic town of Goshen, NY this multi-story complex underwent a major renovation and addition in 2016. This $74M project consisted of a complete renovation and new addition to the historic property designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph.

“I saw it as a building that had really not been well-maintained, or that had fallen into disrepair,” Streb said, adding that the space itself was “very impressive.”

Specialty Trades was contracted to perform interior and structural demolition on this job, when it was discovered that asbestos was present on the worksite Specialty Trades was able to quickly provide abatement services to the GC to keep the job on track with minimal delays. This project presented many engineering issues that required creative solutions to overcome. The use of extensive structural shoring and a Brokk remote demolition robot were used to insure worker safety.
