Amenta Emma Awarded by CREW CT


Discovery Academy

Hartford, CT – Amenta Emma’s CREC Discovery Academy project was awarded Best Specialty Project – Adaptive Reuse at the CREW CT Blue Ribbon Awards event in April.

Amenta Emma designers salvaged 48,000sf of an abandoned electric utility building and created a 19,000sf addition to accommodate learning spaces, labs, and multipurpose space for a gymnasium, theater, and cafeteria.

The facility takes full advantage of natural light and emphasizes indoor-outdoor connections, aligned with the school’s STEM theme.
