Norwich Technical High School
Additions and renovations to convert an existing 100,000 SF community college facility into a new 208,000 SF state-of-the-art technical high school. Moser Pilon Nelson developed the original master plan and feasibility study for this project, comparing this facility with an alternate site in Norwich. The work involved phased construction over a 2.5-year period and coincided with the relocation and consolidation of the college programs to their newly expanded campus. The facility was fully occupied during the phased construction.
This building includes over a dozen technical education labs, four science labs, computer labs, full academic facilities, auditorium, media center, new gymnasium, cafeteria/dining/culinary arts facilities and comprehensively upgraded mechanical, electrical and data systems throughout.
Academic facilities throughout the building are fully technology-enabled with internet/intranet access, networked LCD projectors, interactive whiteboards technologies, media storage and retrieval, and cable television for distance learning available in all instructional spaces.
