METHUEN, MA – Consigli Construction Co., Inc., (Consigli), together with the Methuen Public Schools and Finegold Alexander + Associates Inc, recently celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Methuen High School. The 364,000 square-foot project was constructed in two phases over two years—all while occupied by 1,400 students.
“Consigli is proud to have been part of this transformative project, and to deliver a fully updated and expanded modern high school for the City of Methuen—within their original timeline,” said James Hervol, Project Executive for Consigli.
“The existing 1975 school was well-built, but the previous open-classroom design did not provide an optimal learning environment,” said Methuen Public Schools Superintendent Judith Scannel. “The new design expands the school, improves the user experience, introduces energy and water-efficiency, increases daylight, and provides expanded teaching tools including a new wing for art and music, along with a 750-seat auditorium with stage that exposes students interested in theatre technology to professional-level equipment. We thank the entire design and construction team for completing a very challenging project.”
