Wethersfield High School

The Wethersfield High School comprehensive renovation project addressed educational program requirements and energy conservation needs. The 255,000-SF “as-new” renovation and 26,000-SF addition also enhanced safety, accessibility, and improved circulation and site amenities.

Another critical element of this project was the community’s desire to pursue an environmentally sensitive design. This includes passive and active systems that meet LEED Silver Certification. Cost-to-benefit analyses indicated that a photovoltaic array and a geothermal system will help achieve the project and town goals.
