    "Common Ground cultivates habits of healthy living and sustainable environmental practice among a diverse community of children, young people, and adults."  

    Common Ground is a CT School of Distinction and a national Green Ribbon School.   The new 13,000sf addition features on-site energy production and storm water treatment, natural illumination, and passive ventilation. The building exploits the structural capacities and ecological benefits of wood fiber as one of the first buildings in the United States to use cross-laminated timber (CLT) as its primary structure. Organschi Architects were the project architects.

    There are currently only two schools in Connecticut that have achieved LEED Platinum status; Common Ground is seeking to become the third.
