The team from L.R. Costanzo Co., Inc. managed the construction of a new, one-story, 12,600 square foot building featuring classrooms, therapy laboratories, administrative space, and a general science laboratory. They also oversaw the creation of a new parking lot, concrete walking paths, and underground detention system. The team consisted mainly of local contactors, many of whom are Johnson College graduates.
