One Top Workplace to Another

Published on February 18th, 2013

Centerbrook, which was named a “Top Workplace” in Connecticut by The Hartford Courant and WTIC Channel 61 in 2012, also played a role in one of its client’s being named to the national list of good places to work.

Manchester Community College was chosen as one of the top 150 workplaces (135th) nationwide in a survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics of Pennsylvania in partnership with media outlets in 30 U.S. regions. It included companies and employers with at least 1,000 employees.

Centerbrook designed a 250,000-square-foot expansion to the Connecticut school that encompassed a library, computer laboratories, science laboratories, art studios, general purpose classrooms, language classrooms, media facilities, an art gallery, an auditorium, faculty offices, and food service facilities. Some renovations were carried out within the existing building. The work began with a comprehensive campus master plan. Centerbrook Partner Chad Floyd, FAIA, led the design team.

Centerbrook, with a staff of 65, was ranked 27th in Connecticut among workplaces with between 50 and 149 employees.
