Platt Technical High School
The existing Platt Technical High School was built in 1974 on a 50 acre site with limited upgrades thereafter. The new replacement facility is part of a statewide technical school Capital Improvement Plan initiated in 2014. The program 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 and changing educational trends.
The 225,000 SF school was constructed adjacent to the existing occupied building 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.
The work also includes 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.
With the new facility complete, the existing school was demolished, followed by final site work.
