On October 28, officials from the North Branford School District, the State of Connecticut, and the Town of North Branford joined school faculty and staff, as well as representatives from Construction Solutions Group, Quisenberry Arcari Malik, LLC, and Gilbane Building Company to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the new,106,000-SF North Branford High School.

The new facility will accommodate 524 high school students and feature spaces for learning commons, science labs, engineering and technology, culinary arts, media center, arts and music, a gymnasium, and a cafeteria. The new high school will be constructed in multiple phases over a 30-month period to accommodate for the operations of the existing high school, set to be demolished in two phases.

Designed by Quisenberry Arcari Malik, LLC, the facility’s high-performance design is future-ready and provides 21st century learning to its students. Plans include amenities tailored to its growing technology education and career track population.

“We’re excited to mark the official start of this amazing project with the Town of North Branford,” said John Hawley, vice president and business unit leader for Gilbane in Connecticut. “Our experience as a leading builder of K-12 facilities on occupied campuses will ensure that community and student safety are never compromised.”

North Branford High School is slated for completion by the Spring of 2024.
