NORWICH – Design teams have worked diligently to meet deadline and architects are ready to enter the next phase of the design process for the Norwich City Schools’ building project.
Voters gave approval for the $35 million district-wide project last March. Document design is complete and architects are now entering the construction document phase. This is the third and last phase before sending the project for approval.
Thomas Associates Group and the Greenwood Group met with the Norwich City School Board members Tuesday to review the design process and what the next phase entails.
Board members got to see computer-designed images of what the middle school is going to look like. The middle school remodeling is the biggest part of the building project, but every school in the district is having something replaced, remodeled or updated.
Scott Duell, an architect from the Thomas Associates Group, introduced the Greenwood Group. The Greenwood Group is the acting construction project manager. This group is essential in the construction and maintenance of the project. Greenwood will report to the district to ensure that the construction is done correctly. Duell said Greenwood had just joined the project and as it continues there will be several more people involved. He said it takes a lot of talented people to put such a large undertaking together.
