Platt Technical High School
The $78 million major renovation of Platt Technical High School 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 project involves design and construction of a new Platt Technical High School comprising approximately 230,000 GSF, capacity for approximately 1,062 students. The new school will be constructed on the existing Platt Technical High School site and have two levels. The school will include a renovation of approximately 208,000 square feet of the existing facility, featuring classrooms, shops, labs, and offices, along with approximately 25,847 total square feet of various new additions. The project will also include the demolition of the existing school building and the construction of new athletic fields. Parking for approximately 250 cars as well as a 15-bay maintenance bus garage will also be included in the project.
The existing building will remain occupied during construction.
