Charter Oak State College
NCA was retained by the State of Connecticut, Department of Administrative Services, in support of their agency, Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, to provide design services for Charter Oak State College’s relocation to Central Connecticut State University’s (CCSU) Institute of Technology and Business Development (ITBD) located at 185 Main Street, New Britain, Connecticut.
The intent is to renovate the 1st floor (6,600 gsf) and the 2nd floor (21,400 gsf) of the ITBD Building.
The 1st floor of the ITBD building serves as the primary building entrance from Main Street and an attached 74 car parking garage of which the 1st floor (30 spaces) will be reserved for Charter Oak’s use. The 3rd and 4th floor levels house multiple tenants that will remain as occupants of the building.
This 4 story building’s downtown location will provide a visible presence for Charter Oak while also accommodating the functional and programmatic needs for Charter Oak which primarily serves adult students from the State of Connecticut.
