Glastonbury, CT –S/L/A/M Construction Services (SLAM CS) was recently honored by the Connecticut Associated Builders and Contractors (CT ABC) with an Award of Merit – Institutional for Excellence in Construction, for the Chapel Haven Residential/Education (REACH) building project, located in New Haven.

SLAM CS also received the first-ever Spirit Award for employing the most ABC member subcontractors on a project.

SLAM’s integrated design build team was hired in 2017 to transform Chapel Haven’s New Haven educational and residential campus. The project scope included master planning, programming, design, and construction.

Phase one of the project provided a new four-story 32,500sf educational and residential facility (known as the REACH Building) with three upper floors of dormitory-type suites with two- and three-bedroom units, shared kitchens and common spaces. The first floor includes classrooms, gathering spaces, and administration.

There also was an addition and renovation to the existing admissions building, including exterior courtyard space, infrastructure improvements, a new parking area and improved access to the campus.
