Construction is set to begin this fall on renovations to the Vermont state office complex in Waterbury.

Governor Peter Shumlin signed into law yesterday a state building projects bill that includes $12 million to begin the process of bringing up to 900 jobs back to Waterbury.

The money is part of an $18 million Irene recovery package. Officials hope to add up to another $15 million in state money for the Waterbury project.

The plan is to demolish some of the flood-damaged buildings, renovate others and then build a new flood-proof office building. The entire project is expected to cost close to $100 million.

FEMA and the state’s insurance carrier are expected to make significant contributions to the final cost.
