Newington Town Hall + Community Center

After nearly 10 years of public debate, the Town of Newington approved a $28.8-million bond for a new Town Hall. Voters favored the project by a more than 2-1 margin.

​QA+M Architecture led a series of public workshops to develop community consensus and unite the public behind a plan to build a new Town Hall. Site configuration, recreation fields, traffic, walkability, environmental impact, cost and state building aid were among the many concerns expressed by the residents of Newington, who played a key part throughout the bond approval process.

As a result, QA+M Architecture designed a 75,000-SF town hall and community center to be built in the upper town hall parking lot. The space includes two fullsized basketball courts, additional storage space, a discrete entrance for human services and board of education offices with an open floor plan, Town Council chambers, community television, and the Transition Academy. The existing Town Hall remained in operation during construction.
