Enlightenment Special Education Program Center
Originally an all-girls Catholic school, the Enlightenment School is an alternative learning program for Waterbury's middle and high school aged students with behavioral and truancy problems. As part of their district-wide capital improvement project, the City of Waterbury hired Newfield Construction to renovate the Enlightenment School. Newfield acted as Construction Manager-at-Risk on this 40,000 square foot renovate-as-new project.
The extent of the renovations, bringing all systems to a 20-year life span will include classrooms, kitchen/cafeteria, gymnasium, offices and support spaces.
Newfield exceeded Waterbury's Minority and Women Owned Business requirements as well as Project Labor Agreements. We reached out to community groups to attract local trade talent to the project.
Wilby High School - Science Suite Renovation
This renovation of 12,000 square feet included 8 science suites, 2 general science classrooms, greenhouse and toilet rooms. Construction of 4 temporary classrooms occurred in a multi-purpose space allowing the project to occur in only 2-phases. This 6-month project adhered to Waterbury's Minority and Women Owned Business requirements.
