Bridgeport, CT – Earlier today, Commissioner Gilman, Governor Ned Lamont, and Mayor Ganim hosted a beam-signing ceremony for the new construction of the Bullard-Havens Technical High School at 500 Palisade Ave. The building will be the new host to all Bullard-Havens students with an expected opening date of November 2025 and will be a state-of-the-art facility, measuring at 215,000 square feet. The building will include a baseball, softball, and football field; a running track, 13 specialty shop spaces, and a gymnasium large enough to fit the entire student body. 

Mayor Ganim stated, “I want to thank Governor Ned Lamont, the Bridgeport delegation, and all others who are involved in the construction of the new Bullard-Havens Technical High School. This new state-of-the-art facility will mean so much to Bridgeport as much as it does to the students who will get to experience it. This new school will continue to foster the commitment to providing the best quality education for these students within the technical field.”

The new school boasts energy-efficiency with over 240 geothermal wells to heat and cool the building partnered with its reduction in storm water runoff and outdoor light pollution. Based on the building’s architecture, water usage, lighting, and cooling needs have been reduced, thus reducing the fossil fuels needed to maintain everyday needs of the school. With its energy efficiency, the new facility will be the most sustainable technical high school in the state of Connecticut.
