Education

Whether public, independent, preK-12 or collegiate, we build teaching and learning environments that prepare students for academic excellence.

O&G has been trusted to build more than 300 school projects, including more than 6 million SF of sustainable, LEED certified, and high performance spaces. We work with school leaders and design teams to bring much-needed facilities to communities and campuses in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Our teams’ standards for safety and security, budget and schedule sensitivity, and techniques to minimize disruptions are our highest priorities.

Ella T. Grasso Technical High School

The new 228,742 SF high school replaces an outdated facility and provides state-of-the-art trade education for 800 regional high school students’ core academics. It features a combination of hospitality and culinary programs (with a new restaurant) and a new welding program, to help meet the needs of Electric Boat and other area manufacturers. The new facility includes a grand staircase, auditorium, hair salon, automotive technology center, a state-of-the-art contemporary culinary kitchen, and a cafeteria. Completion of the new building was followed by demolition of the existing school where a new football field and track were constructed in its place.
