Union carpenters in Connecticut will get a boost as New Haven just approved a $600 million project for Yale to build two residential colleges. Construction is set to begin next summer and finish in 2015.
Turner Construction is the Project Manager for Phase One. Demolition on the site was performed by Manafort Brothers. Donaldson and CJ Fucci did piledriving and retainage work. All work will be done by union contractors, with bids for remaining work due in January.
The project will include living spaces, dining halls, libraries and academic and recreational spaces for an additional 800 students, according to a story in the New Haven Register. They will be the 13th and 14th "residential colleges" for Yale.
