Newfield acted as Construction Manager on this 650-student middle school. Initially constructed in 1971 with code updates in mid-1990, this 150,000-square-foot facility needed 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 have complete building sprinkler systems, ducted supply and return air systems, accessible plumbing fixtures, fire alarm systems, exit and emergency lighting, security systems, data and technology, and 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 contacted community groups to attract local trade talent to the project.
