The Town of Southbridge’s plan for a Middle/High School building serving 1,050 students on 100 acres of previously undeveloped land involved extensive site work, parking lot construction, sports fields and extension of all utilities to the site.
- Client objectives were achieved within a tight budget and an aggressive schedule.
- School program areas include classrooms, laboratories, media center, kitchen, cafeteria, gymnasium, auditorium and offices.
- 45 of the 100 acres were cleared, involving blasting, heavy excavation and backfill during fall and winter, with silt fencing installed to protect the vernal pool on the east side of the site.
