The Hotel Fauchere, individually listed on the National Historic Register, was built around 1880 as a resort hotel by Louis Fauchere, former chef of Delmonico's Restaurant in New York City. Mr. Fauchere had moved to Milford during the 1850s, and operated a hotel in a smaller structure, but around 1880 moved the smaller building back and constructed the present Hotel Fauchere. It was host to Sarah Bernhardt, Ogden Nash, and members of the Roosevelt and Rockefeller families, among many others.
The hotel was completely restored and brought into compliance with current ADA, electrical, life safety, and other codes. We provided Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) design services, as well as architectural support and interior design assistance during construction.
Our responsibilities included design and documentation of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems; coordination with the owner's kitchen consultant; coordination of the fire protection system with the subcontractor; review of submittals; responses to RFIs; and punch list inspections. We met with the Owner and contractors at the site to discuss and recommend systems, and attended progress meetings with the Owner and contractor.
Architectural support services included coordination of proposed MEP systems and other architectural support as needed during construction.
