Naugatuck High School was originally constructed in 1957 with a major addition in 1974 and a smaller cafeteria addition in 2003. Additional previous projects include replacement of the roof with the second largest photovoltaic panel installation on an educational facility in Connecticut. In addition, Kaestle Boos completed an existing conditions assessment to identify the needs of the school. The current renovation-as-new project includes repair and renovation of cracked masonry walls and floors, replacement of doors and windows with energy efficient units, installation of a sprinkler system throughout the school and modifications to the HVAC system to improve efficiency. All areas of the 342,000 SF school are being renovated and updated including classrooms, offices, the auditorium, nataorium, gymnasium, and media center. Code compliance updates are also being completed throughout the school including ADA accessibility and the Board of Education offices are being moved to the high school. The project will meet or exceed Connecticut High Performance Building requirements, and is scheduled for completion in October, 2015.
