New Construction Methods in Play for NJ School Build

August 16, 2016


New Jersey’s Hudson County School of Technology High Tech High School is getting a new home at Laurel Hill in Secaucus. The $160 million project, which received 59% of the budget from state funding, broke ground in May of this year, and will replace the former campus in North Bergen. The school, developed by Hudson County Improvement Authority, is one of the first projects in New Jersey to be done using the design-build method, following the New Jersey Assembly’s approval of this technique, an alternative to traditional design-bid-build, in June of 2015. The new approach allows for the elimination of the lowest bidder selection process, resulting in shorter project time.
