DTC is providing structural engineering services for all four phases of the Rogers Inter-District K-8 Magnet School extension.
The project involves creating an auxiliary campus on Strawberry Hill Avenue, Stamford CT at the former Sacred Heart Academy site. The auxiliary campus will be an extension of the very successful Rogers Inter-District K-8 Magnet School. Phase I and II of the project is to renovate the former Sacred Heart Academy existing classroom building, constructed in 1925, and the existing gymnasium building, constructed in 1964, for occupancy in fall of 2016. The total renovated floor area is 37, 870 square feet. These phases also include demolition of existing structures on the site to accommodate landscaping modifications and traffic flow improvements.
Phase III – New Construction and Phase IV – Like-New Renovation (projected start first quarter 2017) involves construction of approximately 100,000 square feet of new buildings. The new construction will consist of a two story classroom wing with kindergarten classrooms on the first level and media center on the second level. A three story classroom wing will house the first through six grade classrooms. A one story wing will contain the new gymnasium and services areas of the kitchen and cafeteria. The existing gymnasium structure will be razed and will be replaced with a new auditorium and two music classrooms.
The 1925 building will be renovated to accommodate administration offices and seventh and eighth grade class rooms. A “historic registered” barn structure will also be renovated and incorporated into the campus. When complete the campus will support 900 students.
