MIDDLETOWN – A comprehensive interior renovation of the 28,000-square-foot Memorial Schoolhouse has been completed by Shawmut Design and Construction, working in partnership with Vision 3 Architects.

The historical building at St. George’s School was built in 1923 to honor the graduates of the preparatory school who died in World War I.

It was designed by McKim, Mead & White as the original academic building on campus. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.

The project involved brick and masonry restoration, replication and replacement of exterior windows and stone surrounds, and a rebuilding of the building’s parapets and entries, according to a news release.

Restoration also included repairs to the limestone exterior, preservation to woodwork throughout and the installation of custom lighting fixtures.

The building is now accessible and compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and has a new elevated and updated system.
