The Jonathan E. Reed Grade School in Waterbury, CT is a state of the art facility and is the first school in Waterbury named after an African American.
This new, $31.5 million, 76,000 sf elementary/middle school contains a two story classroom wing with two classrooms for each grade, special education rooms, art & science classrooms and home resource rooms. The classroom wing also has a new media center and support space for school staff. The two-story open ceiling “cafetorium”, full size gym and athletic support spaces is located in an adjacent wing.
Although not seeking LEED certification, the school achieved LEED Silver status.
The city of Waterbury received over 90% reimbursement from the State of Connecticut for this school construction project. It was important to be in compliance with and have the proper documentation for OSCGR.
The completion of this project had a very real social and economic impact for the City of Waterbury, instilling pride and excitement within the surrounding community.
