Project Overview
The Town of Mansfield is building a new Elementary School located at 134
Warrenville Rd, Mansfield CT, adjacent to the existing Southeast Elementary School
which will be razed at the completion of the new school.
Current scope of work requires chemical analysis and testing results as outlined in
attached documents. A total of 4 wells will be drilled in this phase, 2 domestic, and
2 geothermal. Phase 2, not covered by this RFP, will be responsible for connecting
the potable wells drilled as part of the initial testing activities covered by this RFP
scope. Refer to the provided specifications and location maps for project layout
driving this phasing plan.
The existing building is a single-story masonry building of approximately 38,400s.f.
originally constructed in 1957 with additions in 1965, 1990 and 2000 including
portable classrooms. The existing building will be fully occupied during
construction. To accommodate the phasing needs of the project and full
occupation of the current building while the new school is being built, a new
drinking water well will need to be fully operational and connected prior to the old
wells being disturbed by construction of the new school foundations.
The enrollment of the new school is projected to be approximately 600 students.
The proposed grade configuration is Pre-K thru Fourth Grade. The architects for
the project is TSKP Studios and Colliers Project Leaders is the Owner’s Project
Manager. The project will be bid as a GC project.
