• White House (Coming) Down

    On Thursday, October 15, a demolition crew from BesTech ripped into the first Fairfield Hills “white house” to be razed in the coming days. The next phase of demolition on the town owned campus involves taking down all the deteriorating former staff homes that dot the western corner of the property adjacent to Mile Hill Road South, as well as an adjacent collapsing green house. Town leaders are also currently determining which of the large former state hospital buildings will be demolished next, a decision expected before the end of this year.

  • Danbury Hall Is Razed

    Another main piece of the Fairfield Hills skyline is gone: Danbury Hall this week is reduced to just rubble as Bestech crews work to separate and remove or reuse the debris. Ground-down concrete will fill the empty hollow where Danbury Hall once stood, making a home to then-state hospital staff.

  • State Action Gets Sandy Hook School Project Off To A Fast Start

    Sandy Hook School demolition and remediation work is already running ahead of schedule, thanks to the state recommending remediation vendor Bestech also handle demolition work at the site.

    According to First Selectman Pat Llodra, late last Friday, October 11, the town received notice from the state that the town could move forward using Bestech for both remediation and demolition under a “professional services” designation, which means the town would not have to go out to bid for a separate demolition contractor.
