SVMC's 'Green' Razing of Lodge Building Makes Way for New ER
By Brian Rhodes, iBerkshires Staff
01:28PM / Sunday, November 21, 2021

The Lodge building was most recently used for offices. 

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Medical Center has begun the slow process of a "green demolition" of its Lodge building.

The building, which SVMC is demolishing to make way for its $28 million Kendall Emergency Department, was built in 1925 and initially acted as laundry and housekeeping facilities. In recent years, the Lodge has served primarily as an office building.

"This really is the culmination of probably the better part of 10 years of planning," said SMVC President and CEO Thomas Dee.

Rather than demolishing the Lodge and disposing of the materials, SMVC is doing a "green

By Bill Schmick,
11:51AM / Saturday, November 20, 2021
Stocks and bonds traded in a tight range for most of the week. Some stocks were rewarded, while others punished, based on their earnings results. The U.S. dollar hit a series of new yearly highs, and just about everyone is waiting for President Biden's pick to head the Federal Reserve Bank.   That announcement could come as early as this weekend. Chairman Jerome Powell's term will end in February 2022. He is a Republican, picked by former President Donald Trump. He had a somewhat rocky relationship with the ex-president but did manage to maintain the independence of the central bank despite Trump's attempted interference. His track record through the pandemic makes him a
