O&G Industries, Connecticut’s largest privately-held construction company, began work on the construction of the new Ella T. Grasso Technical High School in Groton, Connecticut.
O&G was selected as the Construction Manager for the $98.3 million dollar construction project. The project will include construction of a new 220,000 square foot facility on the existing site. The new school will be built adjacent to the current facility with completion of the new building expected in the fall of 2019 for arriving students, followed by demolition of the existing school where new athletic facilities will be sited on its former footprint.
Grasso serves students from 24 towns in Southeastern Connecticut with an annual enrollment of over 500 students. Programs offered at the school include Automotive Technology, Culinary Arts, Electrical, Manufacturing Technology, Plumbing & Heating, HVAC and Information Systems Technology. The new facility will allow the school to serve 800 students from throughout the region, offering eleven programs in technology and core programs.
