The $57.8M Winooski School District project involved renovating 145,000 SF of the existing educational facility (Pre-K through 12) and a 70,000 SF expansion. This revitalization project serves the fastest-growing student population in Vermont and boasts 21st-century modernized learning environments. Additions include a new gym, expanded student services, and a new entry featuring a cafe and a community services center (medical and dental) for students and the community.
Renovations included programming changes needed to update the school’s infrastructure to modern educational standards, consolidating student services, re-roofing, athletic field changes/relocations, and providing nearly total replacement of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
With the most extensive rooftop solar array in any Vermont school, the District’s commitment to sustainability is a remarkable step forward. It will be a model to follow as our state upgrades its educational institutions.
ReArch differentiated themselves by the phasing plans they brought to the table before meeting us. The phasing plan made it clear they had done their homework and there was a lot of thought, and the plan made a lot of intuitive sense to us as educators.
During construction it feels like ReArch is very much at the service of the owner. They are super responsive with outstanding communication throughout the project.
