CREC Academy of Aerospace and Engineering






CT High-Performance Building

This renovate-as-new project involved the transformation of an existing 165,000 SF office building into a state-of-the-art school for 735 students in grades 6 through 12, including the selective demolition of the existing building back to its structure.

This aerospace and engineering-themed magnet school was created to educate students for careers in those fields. The facility is broken into four distinctive areas: high school, middle school, aerospace/engineering, and assembly. Spaces include a fabrication lab, manufacturing lab, aerospace CLAB, engineering CLAB, physics CLAB, environmental science, chemistry CLAB, biology CLAB, storage, independent study spaces, workshops, lecture halls, a cafeteria, and a gymnasium.

The project was constructed in two phases: asbestos abatement and demolition, and general building construction.
