Unity School’s $17.5 million, 36,000 square foot addition and renovation is now home to a new 650-seat auditorium, a two-station gymnasium and fitness center. Renovations include work done on the science and STEM labs, a greenhouse and faculty offices. In addition, construction included new building entrances, bus drop-off areas and parking zones, which will enhance security and safety, as well as traffic flow.

Wells Concrete provided more than 36,000 square feet of precast concrete for the gym and auditorium portion of this project, including 103 members of insulated architectural wall panels. The wall panels boast a combination of Endicott thin brick clay products, acid etch and sandblast with a buff color concrete mix, as well as the school mascot embedded into the precast. Hollowcore plank, solid slab floors and columns were additional pieces produced and erected for the project.
