Construction Management at Risk

This 35,000-square-foot facility, embellished with marble, ionic columns, crystal chandeliers, and cherry wood, promotes a luxury social gathering experience. An innovative design allows for seating from anywhere from 50 to 900 guests. The facility’s flexibility allows for small intimate gatherings through large weddings and corporate affairs. Parties of up to 900 can gather in the large ballroom, or smaller groups can use half or a quarter of the space. All ballroom facilities have doors to an outside balcony overlooking the gardens and Farmington River.

One large central kitchen with two separate servery areas and a more minor basement prep kitchen service food needs. Two bars and cocktail areas mirroring each other on opposite sides of the building allow patrons more intimate areas for conversation. Double French doors open from the bar areas to the outside patios, allowing guests to mingle outside during warm weather. Elegantly appointed private suites with living areas and full baths provide a respite for honored guests. v
