LeChase projects win Jeffrey J. Zogg Build NY Awards

The YO1 Wellness Center in Monticello, N.Y., has won a Jeffrey J. Zogg Build NY Award from the Associated General Contractors (AGC).

Completed in late 2017 for owner Veria Lifestyle, Inc., the 295,000-SF facility offers guests a unique blend of Eastern and Western wellness therapies, yoga, fitness activities and nutrition services as well as luxurious accommodations. LeChase was construction manager for the project, which was built on the property where Kutsher Country Club – the last of a different era of Catskill resorts – once stood.

LeChase also provided construction management for another winning project, the Binghamton University School of Pharmacy. The $32 million research and education facility was delivered in May 2018, enabling university staff to move in and begin preparing for August classes. The project had already won an Excellence in Partnering award from AGC last fall.

The YO1 Center and School of Pharmacy were two of four projects recognized statewide in the annual Build NY competition. The AGC presented the awards in Albany on May 7.
