O&G’s latest LEED Gold certified project – The Taft School Moorehead Wing received the AGC 2012 Build CT Award for large renovation. O&G brought the visions of Taft’s Trustees and Headmaster to reality by working with both Taft and the Gund Partnership to construct a magnificent, environmentally responsible dining facility and educational space that would remain at the heart of their campus, serving current and future generations of Taft students.
The Taft School project transformed part of the original Horace Dutton Taft building into a new, dynamic space; blending with the School’s historic character while incorporating innovative systems such as an air-handling system designed to minimize wasted energy, a large rainwater collection system and low-flow water fixtures. Completed within a campus that operates year round, the project encompassed demolition of the lower dining hall, 24,000 SF of new construction with 13,000 SF of renovation, as well as the historic renovation of the former residence of Taft’s founder, Horace Taft, to a private dining or conference room.
The project is evidence of O&G’s continued commitment to green building – constructing facilities that are environmentally friendly; healthier place to live, work and learn. The project also previously received a Design Award from the Connecticut Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (CTGBC) and the 2010 Cast Stone Institute Excellence Award for the collegiate-gothic style cast stone chosen to replicate the limestone used on the original building window surrounds, arches and roof rakes.
