New London School Breaks Ground

The project team and project owners break ground on the new Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School in New London.

New London, CT – A groundbreaking was recently held to kick off the Bennie Dover Jackson Multi-Magnet Middle School project in New London.

The project includes a combination of renovation of the existing facility, selective demolition, and an addition which will culminate in a new 165,000sf facility. All new heating, cooling and ventilation will be installed in addition to new science space and classrooms. An interior courtyard will also be enlarged to accommodate outdoor programming.

Once completed, the new facility will be home to three modes of learning including a traditional middle school curriculum, a STEM program, and an International Baccalaureate program.

The O&G Building Group is the construction manager; Perkins Eastman is the project architect; and Colliers International is the owner’s project manager. The project is expected to be completed in fall of 2024.
