We always strive for excellence in all of our work, but every so often a public acknowledgment comes our way and it reminds us why we do what we do.

AGC VT Best Builders Award 2019 “Outstanding Quality of Work and Effort”
North Branch Fire District #1 WWTF- West Dover, VT
The 2019 AGC award was given for work done at the West Dover Wastewater Treatment Plant which was constructed over 18 months. Unforeseen groundwater caused significant delay in
lining the clearwater holding pond. Another component, as bid, contemplated construction of two clarifiers over the contract time. As a result of the delays in completing the holding pond, an alternate plan would be required. Kingsbury was notified that one of the new clarifiers needed to be completed and the second converted to a temporary storage tank within three weeks to
maintain treatment standards during winter peak flows. Subsequently a monumental effort was undertaken to meet new requirements.
AGC VT Best Builders Award 2018 “Innovative Aquatic Reconstruction”
Burton Island Electrical Cable Replacement- Saint Albans Bay, VT
This well-deserved award came after battling icy winds, waves, rain, and snow where our installation team was able to restore power to Burton Island for the People of the State of Vermont. When fully commissioned, the new service was delivered under budget and ahead of schedule.
AGC VT Best Builders Award 2017 “Renewable Industrial, Hydro”
Enosburg Falls Hydroelectric Phase 1- Enosburg Falls, VT
We brought in another AGC Best Builders Award in 2017 for unparalleled advancement in the field of hydroelectric facilities for Phase I of the Enosburg Falls project. Phase I entailed removing and refurbishing the hydraulic flow control gates so the Village Power House could be dewatered for a detailed inspection. Phase II began in July of 2017 and is planned to be completed by August of 2018.

Burton Island Cable Replacement, Lake Champlain
We received the AGC Best Builders Award for replacing and reconnecting the electric conduit that brings power to the Burton Island Park in Lake Champlain. We delivered the Burton Island Cable Replacement project under budget and ahead of schedule.
AGC VT Best Builders Award 2014 “Specialty Construction”
South Hero STP EH08 – Ferry Docks, South Hero, VT
We met the challenge of a difficult job by providing larger, more accommodating, docks and landings for the non-profit group Local Motion‘s new 20 person ferry on the old railway bed crossing Lake Champlain between South Hero and Colchester Vermont.
Our Design/Build solution increased the usable dock areas while respecting heavy pedestrian traffic, harsh weather, 6 miles of one-way access, archeologically sensitive underwater areas and other submerged obstacles. We also saved 10% on the overall budget.
AGC VT Best Builders Award 2013 “Specialty Construction”
Windsor Upper Dam, Windsor, VT
The 180 year old Ascutney Mill Dam (Windsor Upper Dam) had become inoperable for the last 30 years. It’s Lower Level Outlet (LLO) had become blocked by the buildup of nearly two centuries of sediment deposits.
We dredged the sediments from the dam base, and treated and dewatered the sediments extracted. We then designed and built a 50 foot prefabricated limpet-style cofferdam, removed the old cast iron LLO gate, and replaced it with a new stainless steel one.
