Town of Dedham

Project: Avery Elementary School
Location: Dedham, MA
Architect: Dore & Whittier Architects, Inc.

Located adjacent to the existing high school, this new 3-story, 61,000 sq. ft. elementary school building creates an academic and athletic campus for the Town of Dedham while meeting current education and safety standards.

  • Cutting edge technologies, including extensive use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), were used to manage many aspects of the construction process, as well as coordination of M/E/P systems, construction schedule, safety items and quality control.
  • Using a spray foam insulation method at the exterior wall of this steel framed, brick veneer building provides a continuous air and vapor seal.
  • Extensive site work for the tree-covered site required abatement of contaminated soil and ledge.
