First Place Award: Cranbury Elementary School in Norwalk, CT

The success achieved by Cranbury Elementary was the culmination of a mutual respect and support shared by the Design and Construction teams as well as the Owner’s program managers. A multitude of talented design professionals and dedicated tradespeople came together to create this beautiful new facility. Everyone worked together with a common goal of building a thoughtful, well-functioning structure constructed to serve the community for decades to come, and we think it shows in the finished product. Thanks to the efforts of the full team, this project is on target to come in on time and well under budget.



Merit Award: West Haven High School, West Haven, CT

The West Haven High School renovation, a $130 million transformative endeavor, was the largest school project of its time as it revolutionized the City’s only public high school. Collaboratively executed by Gilbane Building Company, Antinozzi Associates, the City of West Haven, and the School District, the project was completed on time and within budget. The 270,000 SF “renovate as-new” initiative modernized the 1963 facility into a state-of-the-art educational space with advanced STEM classrooms, a media center, and community spaces. Managed in four phases, it allowed continuous operation for over 1500 students, integrating new science and athletic facilities. The design emphasizes security, community engagement, and offers after-hours public access, positioning the school as a vital community hub.

The Connecticut Building Congress recognizes outstanding building projects that exemplify project team excellence and represent the best practices in teamwork by project owners, architects, engineers, constructors and trades. Each year, CBC recognizes projects whose team members have met or surpassed goals and achieved higher project quality through this close collaboration.
