Howell Cheney Technical High School


Location: Manchester, Connecticut
Area: 190,000 Square Feet
Completed: 2007

DESCRIPTION
In 2002, Antinozzi Associates was commissioned by the State of Connecticut Department of Public Works for the design of a 100,000 SF academic addition and major renovations to 90,000 SF of existing space for this 600 student technical high school.

FEATURES
During the design phase of this $43M project, we developed a unique, innovative solution that reduced moving costs, improved site logistics, and lowered overall construction costs. It allowed for the project to be completed in three phases while students occupied the existing school. Our design solution and phasing recommendations were overwhelmingly accepted and approved by the Regional Vocational Technical School Committee.

The new addition encompassed 12 new classrooms and 10 new shop areas offering instruction in a variety of technical trades. The existing classrooms, administrative space, gymnasium, cafeteria, and library all underwent major renovations.
