First look at new Torrington Middle School and High School

GLASTONBURY, CT, May 17, 2022 – SLAM (The S/L/A/M Collaborative), architect, working in partnership with Torrington Public Schools (TPS), the City of Torrington, owner representative Construction Solutions Group (CSG) of East Hartford, and construction manager O&G Industries, are expected to break ground this summer on one of the largest and transformative building initiatives in Torrington’s recent history. Today, the team unveils to the community at large, the future Torrington Middle School and High School. The building’s exterior design features a modern curtainwall infusing abundant natural light and a brick façade that harkens back to the region’s rich beginnings as industrial leaders. The interior spaces will foster hands-on learning, creating, and discovering that will pave the way for a prepared workforce or students of higher education.
