William J. Johnston Middle School

Colchester, CT


Tecton completed a study for the renovation of and addition to the

William J. Johnston Middle School. The new plan consolidates the school into a more efficient layout conducive to the current team teaching model, adds additional parking, greatly improves traffic patterns and makes better use of exterior space for playing fields. Additionally, the project allows an opportunity to upgrade the aged building to today’s IT, ADA, code and safety and security standards.

Combining renovation and new construction gives the town the optimal cost solution. The building project will have no additional tax implication on residents due to state reimbursements and reduced debt payments on other projects. In addition, the smaller footprint and energy efficient design is anticipated to lower current operating costs. The project received overwhelming approval at the town referendum and Tecton has been contracted to proceed with the project. Construction is currently underway.
