Deans Mill & West Vine Schools

Stonington, CT

DRA’s study team completed an existing conditions analysis for six schools and the central office. We developed options to address declining enrollments, aging school buildings, 21st century educational needs, space utilization concerns, parking and traffic issues, improved efficiency, flexibility, and safety. Stonington voters overwhelmingly endorsed the $69 million bond to renovate West Vine Street School, Deans Mill School and replace the roof at Pawcatuck Middle School.

The project at West Vine Street School includes complete renovation of the original 1967 structure and construction of a new addition(s) for classrooms and common spaces including a library and gymnasium.

The project at Deans Mill School includes complete renovation of the original 1967 structure, demolition of the 1973 addition and construction of a new addition(s) for classrooms and common spaces including a library and gymnasium. The project is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Client Testimonial

“DRA helped Stonington in all phases of design. DRA's conceptual design layouts, student enrollment projections, and engineered technical attributes were used by the building committee to inform the community prior to referendum. Stonington's elementary school referendum passed by more than a 2/3 majority.”
