GREENWICH PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Location: Greenwich, Connecticut
Completion: Ongoing since 2015
Antinozzi Associates has provided design services for numerous Greenwich Public Schools capital improvement projects since being awarded an on-call design contract in 2015. These services include evaluating existing conditions, preparing construction drawings and specifications, securing permits from regulatory agencies, developing cost estimates, and providing construction administration services. Renovation projects have included ceiling and lighting replacements, lounge renovations, fire alarm system upgrades, roof replacements, and HVAC system upgrades.
In the 1990’s, Antinozzi Associates was retained on three major school projects in Greenwich. The firm was hired by the Town to complete a feasibility study to address an increase in student enrollment at two schools – North Mianus Elementary School and Riverside Elementary School. As a result of the study, a 12,000 SF addition of ten (10) new classrooms were added simultaneously to each of the two schools. Addressing the existing schools’ vernacular style and existing site layout were, of course, key to the designs.
At Greenwich High School, substantial renovations to the existing 366,000 SF building, several small additions, and a new Science/Technology wing totaling 90,000 SF were completed. Minimizing relocation while maintaining a safe, non-hazardous environment for students, construction was phased into six (6) equal phases and completed on-time and under the $40M budget. All of these school addition and renovation projects required local/State funding and Town approvals.
