Platt Technical High School
The $78 million Platt Technical High School project is part of a statewide technical school Capital Improvement Plan initiated in 2014, which promotes a healthy and safe school environment, provides state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, and responds to Connecticut’s industry needs while addressing projected student demand. The existing school is currently situated on a 50+-acre campus and was originally constructed in the 1970s with limited upgrades thereafter.
The new technical high school will be approximately 225,000 SF and is being built adjacent to the existing school within the state-owned parcel. The design includes classrooms, chemistry and physics labs, vocational training areas, food prep and service areas, gymnasium, auditorium, media center and administrative offices. Project site includes driveways, parking lots, utility relocations, sidewalks.
Along with the new school, new athletic fields with a running track with a fixed grandstand and an ancillary toilet/storage building as well as a new 15 bay bus garage of approximately 10,000 SF will be constructed. The existing building will remain occupied during construction.
Once the new facility is complete, the existing school will be demolished, followed by final site work.
