Cromwell hires firms at cost of $3.14 million for new middle school project

The town has executed contracts totaling about $3.14 million with two companies that will work on the new middle school building. Perkins-Eastman, a Stamford-based architectural firm, and Arcadis, a Middletown-based project management company, were both hired by the town last week to plan, design, and oversee construction of the new Cromwell Middle School. The contracts with Perkins-Eastman and Arcadis — signed by Town Manager Anthony Salvatore Sept. 22 — are worth about $2.48 million and $662,000, respectively. According to the committee, Cromwell will be responsible for about $36.5 million of the project’s total cost, which is estimated at about $58.6 million. The state will reimburse the town about $22.1 million for work on the project. Construction is expected to commence in October 2023 and last about 18 months, ending around March 2025.
