TORRINGTON — Burlington Construction Co. plans to move their offices to the former Mitchell Volvo dealership on New Litchfield Street next spring.
The local construction company purchased the former dealership for $550,000 from Volvo Realty Sales LLC, a company owned by the Mitchell family.
Mitchell Volvo closed its Torrington location in August 2018 and consolidated its business into the Simsbury location.
The 57-year-old building will require some renovations to doing away with the dealership features and convert it into office space and a conference room, according to Justin Giampaolo, president of the construction company.
The new spot will more than double the space at Burlington Construction’s longtime offices at 67 Prospect St., which has about 3,200 square feet. The new location has 6,600 square feet.
Giampaolo said the company’s 16 employees are expected to move to their new home in April. The new space will offer space for possible expansion in the future.
“We have a good reputation and do quality work and as time goes on, we can add people in the right spots,” Giampaolo said.
The company worked on several projects in recent years in Torrington, including the expansion and renovation projects at Brooker Memorial, the Torrington Library and Cook Funeral Home. The company is currently working on an addition project at Torrington Savings Bank’s main offices downtown.
