New Construction

PERCH designs new houses, additions, and any components thereof, either alongside an architect or independently.


939 Dorset St, Charlotte, VT

PERCH provided on-call design expertise for a new net-zero house that involved several modifications to an architect’s plans. Initiatives included selecting open web joists to span an additional 4 feet, specifying concrete for a changing-height basement wall made with insulating concrete forms (ICFs), and designing reinforcing bar placement.


241 Eagle Mountain Harbor Rd, Milton, VT

A narrow plot of land overlooking Lake Champlain demanded a vertical floor plan with a walk-out basement. PERCH designed a 16-foot-by-19-foot garage slab spanning over the basement, which included specifying a corrugated steel form deck and fitting a reinforcement mat into a 5-inch slab depth. PERCH verified rebar placement on-site before concrete was placed.
