Hartford, CT — STV|DPM, part of STV, announced that the new Sandy Hook School project in Newtown, CT, recently received three prestigious industry awards. STV|DPM was the owner’s representative for this new school, which was designed by Svigals and Partners Architects. The Milford, MA-based Consigli Construction was also a part of the team.
The Sandy Hook School project collected two awards at CREW CT – The Real Estate Exchange’s annual Blue Ribbon Awards ceremony. The project placed first in the best specialty project category for educational institutions and was selected as the People’s Choice among all of the top winners within their respective industries. The event, honoring excellence in Connecticut’s 2016 real estate accomplishments, was held April 5 and the honor of People’s Choice was voted on by all of the evening’s attendees.
The school’s project team was also awarded first place in the Connecticut Building Congress (CBC’s) 2017 Project Team Award competition’s K- 12 category. The team was selected based on its outstanding performance, exemplifying project team excellence and representation of best practices in teamwork by project owners, architects, engineers, constructors and trades. The award will be given at the CBC’s Annual Project Team Awards event in June.
As part of this project, STV|DPM was selected by the Newtown Public Building and Site Commission (PBSC) in early 2013 and appointed by the board of selectmen to serve as owner’s representative for the construction of the school. STV|DPM provided comprehensive owner’s project management (OPM) services providing pre-construction planning and construction administration. Working collaboratively, STV|DPM facilitated the design team contracting process for the Town of Newtown, which included New Haven, CT-based Svigals and Partners Architects and the Milford, MA-based Consigli Construction.
To date, this is the fourth award of its kind collected by the project. In November, Sandy Hook School was awarded best building project over $25M by the Connecticut chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA). The project also received an honorable mention in the AIA Connecticut 2016 Design Awards.
