A ceremonial ribbon cutting was held at the William J. Johnston Middle School in Colchester, Connecticut on August 24th to celebrate the opening of the school’s new administrative and classroom wing.
O&G Industries, the construction manager for the project, was responsible for overseeing the construction of the 70,000 square foot addition which includes the new main entrance, administrative offices, cafeteria, media center, multipurpose room / black box theater and over 20 classrooms. Site improvements related to the addition include a new courtyard and patio with expanded parking and redesigned bus and pick up loops that will optimize traffic flow.
Phase 2 of the project includes a 29,000 square foot renovation of the school’s west wing which includes a gym, kitchen, cafe, choral and band rooms. The project will be fully completed in the winter of 2019.
