November 14, 2013 - Connecticut

Albion Street - Bridgeport, CT

Viking Construction has completed a mixed-use housing and healthcare facility, which is a collaborative project owned by Southwest Community Health Center (SWCHC) and the Bridgeport Housing Authority. Viking served as general contractor for the $18 million project, which includes a three-story medical building with offices, out-patient services, a dental clinic with nine exam rooms, and 35 two-bedroom apartment units.
The sustainable building, which is located on a 1.16-acre lot on Albion St., includes energy-efficient windows, extra insulation in the walls, and LEED-certified green roofs on the medical building and on the one-story hallways that connect to the dental clinic. Additionally, the dental center features a Zen garden courtyard.
"This project replaces outdated and insufficient housing and medical buildings with stylish, sustainable, welcoming buildings that combine to make a unique complex for Bridgeport," said Anthony Gaglio, Sr., president of Viking Construction, Inc. "This is the first of its kind in Connecticut and will serve as an example of urban development and public housing for other communities. We are pleased with the completion of this project and know that it will make a positive difference to local residents."
