Ribbon Cutting Held at Colchester Middle School
A ceremonial ribbon cutting was held at the William J. Johnston Middle School in Colchester, Ct., on Aug. 24 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 more than 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.
