Newfield acted as Construction Manager on this 650-student middle school. Originally constructed in 1971 with code updates in mid-1990, this 170,000 square foot facility was in need of significant renovation and system upgrades. Physically separated into an Intermediate and Middle School, this project was completed in 4-phases, while the building was occupied. A strict budget dictated the need for stringent preconstruction services which Newfield delivered through sound budgeting and value engineering exercises.

Project components included new general offices, art rooms, science labs and general classroom upgrades. New mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire protection systems include full building sprinkler system, ducted supply and return air systems, accessible plumbing fixtures, fire alarm system, exit and emergency lighting, security systems, data and technology, electrical power / lighting systems. Exterior renovations included window and entrance system replacements.

The project adhered to Bloomfield's Minority and Women Owned Business requirements. We also reached out to community groups to attract local trade talent to the project.
