2015 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award


Dietz & Company Architects’ work on the Caring Health Center has been recognized with a Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award.

The Caring Health Center has been recognized for the adaptive reuse and the rehabilitation and restoration of the Coomes and Morse Blocks and the Smith Carriage Company building with a 2015 Massachusetts Historical Preservation Award.

“The careful restoration and reuse of these three buildings for use as the Caring Health Center demonstrates a strong commitment to historic preservation that goes well beyond what is normally expected.”

Dietz & Company Architects Senior Project Architect, Debbi Gottlieb, worked tirelessly alongside the Caring Health Center team to complete the daunting task of preserving the the buildings and faced many unforeseen circumstances (including tornado damage) head-on. The buildings that now house the Caring Health Center have been returned to their former glory and are now an important resource to the City of Springfield.
