DRA and Gilbane win 2019 CBC Project Team Award
DRA Architects and Gilbane Building Co. are excited that the Connecticut Building Congress recently selected the Orchard Hill Elementary School in South Windsor, CT as the first-place winner in the K-12 Schools category for the 2019 Project Team Awards competition.
Orchard Hill Elementary School was the first and largest project to be completed under South Windsor’s three-phased, ten-year Elementary Facilities Plan. Gilbane and DRA worked cohesively with South Windsor Public Schools, the Town of South Windsor, and Colliers to deliver a state-of-the-art school with a cutting-edge STEM learning experience. The new school, completed on time and $1 million under budget, created a memorable mentoring experience for students and the community while generating excitement for the next phase of the Facilities Plan.
The awards will be given at the Connecticut Building Congress Annual Project Team Awards event to be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at the Bond Ballroom in Hartford, CT, registrations and details at https://www.cbc-ct.org/event-3207435.
