Dracut, MA: CTA Construction executives joined school, town and state officials, as well as community members, for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Dracut High School on October 28. The multi-phased project included renovations to the existing building and a new addition.
“CTA Construction is proud to have played a role in the renovation and expansion of Dracut High School, a facility on which the community is rightly proud. Dracut High School is now among one of the finest facilities in the state, and it is the result of incredible teamwork by all involved,” said Lyle Coghlin, Principal of CTA Construction, based in Waltham, Mass., and online at http://www.ctaconstruction.com.
The renovation of 138,000 square feet of classrooms, library and cafeteria, along with approximately 83,000 square feet of added classrooms, an auditorium, a gymnasium and locker rooms had a total construction cost of $47 million. The building features state-of-the-art media and computer technology, Wi-Fi access, and smart boards in every classroom.
The project, designed by the architectural firm, the Mount Vernon Group, broke ground in fall 2012, and was completed in time for the beginning of the school year last September.
