School officials say the $2 million science and citizenship building will be the first of its kind on the eastern seaboard. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring, and the building is set to open in August, in time for fall 2009 classes.

Another nice example of Hartfords institutions getting the job done.

I am not sure how much this will affect anything in the North End, but the schools growth can only be a good thing in my opinion. combined with UHarts increased expansion south, progress is being made.

Latest In Green Technology Coming To Watkinson School

By THERESA SULLIVAN BARGER

Special to The Courant

December 2, 2008

Internationally educated architect Mark Miller figured there had to be a better way to build schools with the latest green technology, thought by some to help improve student performance, and build them faster and cheaper.

The Watkinson School in Hartford is about to test Miller's theory.

The preparatory school will be the first on the East Coast to use a Lego-like, life-size modular building system developed by Miller's company, Project FROG Inc. After more than two years of research and testing, Project FROG promises modular structures that are "better, greener, faster, cheaper" than comparable standard construction certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Watkinson's new Center for Science & Global Citizenship will occupy the 4,000-square-foot modular building, which is expected to be ready next fall. The $2 million structure will contain three classrooms and could be built in just six weeks this summer

I really like it. I think it's very cool and futuristic looking and it's definitely a plus to be getting such a cutting edge building in the city.

So I guess they are getting 3 frog units. I see how this works now.

I suppose its affordably expandable if needed as well
