Post Date:07/11/2019 4:25 PM
The Town of Arlington has selected Consigli Construction Co., Inc. as the construction manager for the new Arlington High School. Chosen unanimously by the Arlington High School Building Committee, Consigli was selected for its expertise in construction of K-12 educational buildings as well as the team’s innovative phasing approach and proactive plan to provide the town with maximum value for the established budget.

“Consigli is well versed in the complexities of occupied school and active on-site construction, which is how Arlington’s new high school will have to be built,” said Arlington Town Manager Adam Chapdelaine. “Beyond the tactical challenges of construction, we are confident that Consigli will turn Arlington’s vision for a modern, sustainable, and long-lasting academic institution into a reality.”

Construction of the new 410,000 square foot school is estimated to commence in the summer of 2020, with the first building available for students in 2022. Construction completion is targeted for 2024, followed by a year of site work. The new school will be built for 1,755 students in grades 9-12. Built on the site of the existing high school, the new school will bring educational spaces in line with 21st century education standards and address enrollment growth. The building is also being designed to achieve the town’s goal of being fossil fuel free.

“Academic building is more than just outfitting classrooms, we are partnering with communities to create centers of learning that will meet the needs of evolving educational models and the need for flexible and adaptive spaces,” said Todd McCabe, project executive at Consigli Construction. “The new school will encourage collaboration and be built with the highest quality sustainable materials to reduce future energy costs.”

Consigli has a proven track record of success working on similar local school projects managed near occupied school buildings and residential neighborhoods. Consigli’s local portfolio includes work at Winchester High School, Methuen High School, Stoughton High School, and Holbrook’s Pre-K-12 School as well as current assignments at Attleboro High School and Framingham’s Fuller Middle School.
