O&G Industries, Connecticut’s largest privately-held construction company and one of the country’s Top 100 Green Building Contractors, has substantially completed the renovation of Putnam High School in Putnam, Connecticut.
Construction on the $36.6 million, 98,000 square foot renovate-as-new project began in the fall of 2014 and was completed in the winter of 2017. The scope of the project included replacing windows, renovating science labs, expanding the gymnasium, transforming the existing library into a multi-media center and upgrading the mechanical infrastructure of the 60 year old building.
“During the course of this project we performed a comprehensive renovation that upgraded the school’s facilities to that of a modern educational environment. In the areas that were touched by the renovation we removed all of the structure down to the outer shell of the building. Then we reconstructed the facility with all new components” said Ken Biega, Assistant Vice President of O&G Industries. “We will also address challenges such as the lack of natural light, bring outdated systems up to code, incorporate energy efficient design features and expand areas such as the gymnasium that no longer meet the school’s needs.”
The project team included construction manager O&G Industries of Torrington, Connecticut and project architect Drummey Rosane Anderson (DRA Architects) of South Windsor, Connecticut.
