From 2013-2015, the Paul E. Tsongas Awards embraced a three-year thematic program with a nod to cinematic awards. The program honors the people “behind the scenes” who persevere through complex issues and make preservation projects happen. The theme for 2014 was “Lights, Camera, Action!” This year’s theme “And the Award Goes To” celebrates the culmination of many years of hard work, investment, vision, and collaboration: the completed and restored building. The Preservation Massachusetts Award Dinner was held on Wednesday, May 6 to honor select preservation projects in the state. Representing Bergmeyer were Principals Mike Davis and Joe Nevin, along with Dee Spiro and TJ DiFeo, who shared a table with the folks from Hostelling International. Together, we repositioned this historic landmark structure into a vibrant and sustainable flagship hostel.
