LAN Associates joined with education officials, students, and other members of the Goshen community to break ground on the highly anticipated additions, renovations and site improvements to Goshen High School today.
The project broke ground this morning at Goshen High School, and construction will officially begin on June 25, when students are dismissed for the summer.
“I think we might be more excited for the end of the school year than the students are,” joked Matt Milnamow, Project Manager at LAN Associates, who is managing the design team for the project. “LAN Associates has really found a niche on the education landscape and we look forward to continuing our work for local school districts, especially serving our hometown community in Goshen.”
The $30.5 million bond referendum was approved by the voters on February 28, 2017. Since 2013, LAN has been working with Goshen Central School District as their Architect-of-Record to complete routine capital improvement projects and referendum design services required to implement a $4.6m bond in 2014 and the most recent $30.5m capital project for the work at the High School and the District-Wide I.T. Improvements.
“This is something that we worked really hard to achieve, and to get to this point is truly remarkable, said Superintendent Daniel Connor. “I want to thank the team at LAN for there dedication to this project as they worked with the district every step of the way to ensure that our community and students needs were exceeded.”
