TORRINGTON — Torrington Savings Bank reopened their Main Office at 129 Main Street on Dec. 19, 2018 after the completion of an extensive building renovation — a particularly fitting project for the bank as they conclude 2018 celebrating their 150th year in business.

“We are pleased to underscore our commitment to recognizing Torrington’s rich history, and the place of Torrington Savings Bank within that history for the past 150 years, through the renovation and restoration of our Main Office, “said Torrington Savings Bank President and CEO, John E. Janco. “Our approach to the project has been to preserve as much of the beautiful, historic attributes of the building as possible, while also modernizing it to provide additional efficiency, privacy and comfort.”

Plans for the extensive renovation were created with the help of Phase Zero Design. Burlington Construction, Inc. was engaged as the general contractor. The project included the restoration of the interior pendant lights, the dentil molding and other original architectural detailing. Other project highlights included a new teller area, as well as new customer service and residential lending offices, new lighting, and flooring. Red Thread, Inc. assisted with furniture layout. Mark Perbeck, assistant vice president at Torrington Savings Bank, acted as project lead on behalf of the bank.

Helping to commemorate the day along with Janco were Chairman of the Board Edwin G. Booth, Jr., Vice Chairman Charles E. Roraback, Secretary Thomas Gailes, Jr. as well as Bank Trustees: Charles W. Roraback, Susan R. Carroll, William J. Marchand, Diane V. Libby, Robert Switzgable, and Aaron Mambrino. Torrington Mayor Elinor Carbone, First Selectman of Falls Village Henry Todd, and President of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce, JoAnn Ryan, were also on hand to celebrate the day. In addition, Justin Giampaolo of Burlington Construction, Christopher Milliard of Phase Zero Design, and Robert Rovezzi of Red Thread, Inc. joined the celebration.

Even if you are not a customer, the public is invited to come in and see the newly renovated office. For more information and hours, visit
