• Building project costs labeled 'eye-popping'
     | March 18,2013

    MONTPELIER — The space is being called gorgeous, but the cost “eye-popping.” Vermont lawmakers are applying those terms to office space at the National Life building in Montpelier that has been renovated to house the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and other state agencies.

    Members of the House Institutions Committee say they were given a rough estimate last year that the project to move the Natural Resources Agency into the building that already housed the transportation and commerce agencies would cost around $2 million.

    The more recent estimate? $8.65 million.

    Now members of the House Institutions Committee are looking at ways to avoid similar surprises in the future.
