In 2000, at the start of New Haven’s Citywide School Construction Program, Kenneth Boroson Architects was contracted to design a “renovation as new” and addition to the Truman School.
The rehabilitation of the existing 50,000-sf school, along with a 52,000-sf addition, expanded the program from grades K-5 to PreK-8. The architectural design, which complemented the original 1910 structure, was reviewed and approved by the New Haven Preservation Trust.
Due to "fast-track" scheduling requirements, the project was delivered in five phases. Construction was completed on time to allow students to begin school during the fall of 2004, while additional landscaping and playground construction was completed during the summer of 2005.
The construction cost was $21.5 million.
