Sandy Hook school work praised

The Connecticut Building Congress (CBC) announced that it will recognize the Town of Newtown, Consigli Construction Co., Inc., Svigals+Partners, and STV|DPM for their collaborative work to build the new Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Conn.
The team will formally accept the 2017 Project Teams Awards at a presentation on June 13.

The award recognizes projects that exemplify project team excellence and represent the best practices in teamwork by project owners, architects, engineers, constructors and trades.

“The powerful purpose of this project was never lost on us from day one,” said Matthew Consigli, president of Consigli.

“It was truly an honor to be a partner on this special project and we couldn’t have asked for a better team. We’re humbled to receive this award and thank the CBC for this recognition.”

“It was the best possible team for this unique endeavor,” says Jay Brotman, AIA, managing partner with Svigals+Partners.

“And that includes First Selectman Pat Llodra and the entire Sandy Hook-Newtown community. To receive this award recognizing this three-year collaborative effort is an important honor.”

“This project was the best team effort I have ever seen, with total commitment from everyone involved,” said STV|DPM vice president and project executive Mark DuPre, Sr. Assoc. AIA.

“We’re truly honored to be a part of such a concerted partnership.”

The state-of-the-art, 88,000 s/f school for PreK-4 students opened its doors last fall, after a 32-month timeline that included extensive public engagement, careful planning and design, and best-in-class construction management practices.
The final design includes a curving plan that reaches out across the site as arms in a welcoming gesture to students.
