  • ESRT Construction was hired by the Town of Fairfield to complete a $24 million, phased addition and renovation to the Fairfield Woods Middle School.
  • The project includes a new block of 14 classrooms (ten full size and four small group instruction rooms), a new auditorium with a seating capacity of 660, an expansion of the cafeteria and kitchen, along with some infrastructure improvements such as new boilers, new water service and generator.
  • The new design allows direct access to the new auditorium, existing gymnasium and expanded cafeteria for after school functions.  It also retains a large old-growth tree as a central feature of the new courtyard, which is defined by the classroom addition.
  • The new project, now underway, is following a very tight timeline that has been closely coordinated with school officers to ensure a safe environment.
