New Fairfield, CT – A groundbreaking was held recently to kick off the Consolidated Early Learning Academy project in New Fairfield.

The project includes an approximately 41,000sf addition to the elementary school and limited renovations and upgrades to corridors, vestibules, and teaching spaces in the existing building. The new addition will be built adjacent to the existing building with several areas providing connecting access. The project also includes both new and replacement sitework and exterior features. Major sitework consists of all new underground utility work, pavements and drives, and construction play areas.

The existing school building and exterior areas outside of construction fencing will be occupied by students and staff during the construction period. Expected to be completed in the fall of 2022, the project will meet the State of Connecticut High-Performance Building Standards.

The project team includes O&G Building Group, construction manager; JCJ Architecture, project architect; and Colliers International, owner’s project manager.
