Ribbon Cutting: New London Community School District
Over the past several years, New London Community School District has experienced a steady increase in student enrollment. While this growth was welcomed, it also presented a problem – limited space for classrooms.
After months of planning between the school district, Russell, and architecture firm, ISG Inc., construction on a renovation and addition project that would solve this problem began in May 2022.
After 17 months of construction, the New London Community School District hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by an open house on September 29, 2023 to celebrate the completion of their new addition and renovation to the New London Schools!
The project included:
- 12,752 s.f. gym addition
- 4,298 s.f. renovation of the existing gym into two new classrooms,
- a centrally located library,
- and a spacious staff lounge.
The new gym features six adjustable basketball hoops, a center dividing curtain that creates two secondary courts, and seating for up to 518 people.
Also located within the new addition is a weight room, office space for the Physical Education teacher, ADA-compliant bathrooms, and a concession stand that will allow for fundraising opportunities. The project also includes a new parking lot with additional parking spaces.
Russell is proud to be the construction partner on this project that will provide safe learning and extracurricular spaces to students in the New London community. Thanks to the collaboration of our team, the school district, and our trade partners, we are proud to have delivered this project on time and under budget!
