Russell Construction Services will oversee the building of Green Mountain Power’s Energy Innovation Center in Rutland.
The utility announced Wednesday that Russell was chosen from almost a dozen bidding contractors.
The Rutland-based company will work with NBF Architects and GMP officials, developing a formal construction timeline and managing the budget, the subcontractor bid process and budget, safety and regulatory compliance at the site, and all day-to-day construction work.
The EIC, which is going in the former Eastman’s site on Merchants Row, will include office space, displays and interactive educational opportunities. It will include a heat-pump system and solar generation, and will be accessible for tours.
Russell will begin working on the pre-construction planning process with NBF immediately, with a target date of March 1 to begin construction.
GMP expects to move to the new facility by Oct. 31.
