Danbury, CT (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
The Rizzo Companies have teamed up with the Danbury School System to do major updates and renovations on three of its schools.
Construction has started on all three projects, which help aid the City of Danbury to meet the challenge as the student population grows over the next few years.
Shelter Rock Elementary School will see a new three-classroom addition, a new two-classroom addition, a new cafeteria addition, modifications to an existing classroom and a new parking lot and student drop-off area. The first phase of this project has already been completed, which allowed for a smooth opening to the 2013-2014 school year.
Stadley Rough Elementary School will receive a new three-classroom addition, with a staircase and elevator connecting two stories, a new cafeteria addition, new parking lot and student drop-off area, and alterations to the existing basement including a classroom, two bathrooms, two storage rooms and a corridor. The first phase of this project was also completed on time.
Finally, the biggest project will see the conversion of an existing elementary school into Mill Ridge Middle School. In a $13.5 million dollar project, Rizzo and their subcontractors will transform the building into a new space where children can learn in a new and updated environment. Approximately 1,000 square feet of space will be added to the existing 61,400 square feet, and the school will be updated in line with new life safety and accessibility codes. The layout will be reconfigured with new finishes, roof, and windows. Mechanicals, updated electric and data work, along with a renovated gym with new equipment, will also be added. The exterior will also be updated with a new student drop-off area, separate parking area, new drainage system, updated utilities, new plantings, curbs, sidewalks and paving.
As the general contractor, Rizzo will oversee the work and assist the City of Danbury in the required paperwork to recoup state funds to offset the cost of the projects. Rizzo will also coordinate the various trades and schedule the work to finish everything on time and on budget to allow the city to perform the second phase, and fit up the school with new furniture and equipment in time for a fall 2014 opening.
