Connor Contracting, Inc. was contracted by Bellows Free Academy as the construction manager for the renovation of the existing auditorium and the construction of a 7,545 SF three-story addition to the school. This challenging renovation and addition required structural shoring of the existing roof system in order to remove existing load-bearing walls. When completed, the auditorium was renovated with a new enlarged stage area, new seating, lighting, and air conditioning. New support space includes green rooms, dressing rooms, accessible bathrooms, and storage areas. In addition, three new classrooms were constructed.
