Renovation of Chamberlain Elementary School is nearing halfway point

The $55 million renovation of Chamberlain Elementary School is nearing the halfway point and on schedule to be completed by December of this year. New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart toured the property with the construction team Monday, including architect Kaestle Boos, construction manager Newfield Construction and members of the School Building Committee. This project broke ground last spring after receiving a State School Construction Grant with a reimbursement rate of 95%. A new 17,000 sq. ft. addition will increase the school’s footprint to 110,000 sq. ft. This wing will house administration offices and separate entrances for bus drop-offs and parent pick-ups. It will be up to the New Britain Board of Education whether or not students return to Chamberlain mid-year or if they wait until the 2023–24 school year to reopen the school.
