Warren Harding High School Construction Underway
 Bridgeport, CT
(Fall 2016)

After several years of design and brownfield cleanup, shovels broke ground this summer for construction of the long-awaited high school on Bridgeport's east side.
The four-story, 224,000 square foot school with a construction cost of $81 million is designed for 1,150 students with 55 classrooms, virtual and graphic laboratories, computer and traditional science and language laboratories, art classrooms, music rooms, 600 seat auditorium, gymnasium with bleacher and floor seating to accomodate the entire school population and an auxiliary gymnasium.  The interior space features two stories of classrooms over the gymnasiums and cafeteria and three two-story high Collabagoras at the second floor along the center of the building. Site facilities include a football/soccer multipurpose field, baseball field, eight-lane running track and field house.  Scheduled completion is expected to be in time for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Bridgeport had been searching since 2002 on the city's east side for a site to replace the 90-year-old school building considered to be too costly to renovate and upgrade.  In 2013, the city and General Electric identified 17 acres of GE's 77-acre parcel that could potentially support the construction of the new high school.   Originally the home to the Remington Arms Company, the plant was built in 1915, producing armaments for World War I.  In 1920, GE bought the property to produce small motor and electrical devices. GE closed operations at the site in 2007 and demolished the 1.5 million square foot, 13 building complex between 2010 and 2012. After nearly a century of industrial use the site was a "brownfield" and in 2015 a rigorous state approved plan to bring the site up to both State and Federal residential standards was implemented.

TDEG is proud to again partner with Antinozzi Associates Architects of Bridgeport after the recent opening of Bridgeport's new 600 student K-8 Roosevelt Elementary School, an 82,000 square foot, two-story, masonry academic building completed in 2015 at a cost of $33 million.
