Project Moves into Next Phase of Design

A milestone has been met in the SHS Renovations project. Following the Town Council approval of the Schematic Design (SD) on December 7th, the architect and the project team are moving into the next phase of design. 

The architect will begin to elaborate on SD during the Design Development (DD) phase, adding additional details to the current plans. The DD phase will conclude with a review by the Office of School Construction Grants and presentations before the Planning and Zoning Committee.

Construction Documents (CDs) follow the DD phase.

Following an increase in the SD project estimate, the project team worked with the State to modify the grant in order to protect the Town and ensure full reimbursement.  The grant, which is part of Category A for the State's December 15th Priority List, will need to be authorized by the legislature during the course of the 2016 session.
