MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont environmental officials say the overhaul of the storm-damaged Waterbury State Office Complex is going well.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1gpfCSQ) that one of the hardest hit buildings had much of its building weight diverted for reuse and recycling.

Trey Martin, an attorney for the Department of Environmental Conservation, says that the Department of Buildings and General Services’ active reusing and recycling of materials during the Waterbury complex overhaul can serve as a model for other state projects.

The state hopes to meet high certified environmental standards for the updated buildings.

The renovation was required because of significant damages sustained from Tropical Storm Irene.
