Hammond Academy of Science and Technology To Break Ground On New School

The official groundbreaking of the new Hammond Academy of Science and Technology will be held at 1PM on Thursday, April 15th at the intersection of Ann Street and Muenich Court in Downtown Hammond. Among the dignitaries expected to attend the event are: Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott, Jr., Dr. John Jacobsen, Dean of the College of Education at Ball State University, Dr, Larry Gabbert, Director of Ball State University’s Office of Charter Schools, Dr. Robert Rivers, Dean of the School of Education at Purdue University Calumet, board members of the Hammond Urban Academy, Inc., and parents of students who have enrolled in the new school.

The $16.6 million project was designed by Hammond architectural firm Hutton & Hutton. The project’s construction manager is Gariup Construction. The principal contractor for the first phase of construction is Gough Construction Co. It is anticipated that the project will create hundreds of local construction jobs over the next year.
