HOPKINTON EARLY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Colantonio was the CM at Risk for this project located on a forested site. This new, 88,709 square foot school features 27 general education classrooms for the kindergarten and first grade, along with 4 pre-kindergarten classrooms. The building also includes a gymnasium, kitchen, cafetorium, art, health, music, and specialized classroom spaces.
The site work included extension of a public roadway, two vehicle drop-offs and parking lots, two playgrounds, a play field and connections to adjacent town-owned parcels. The project, which includes a photo-voltaic array on the roof and HVAC systems that optimize energy performance, will seek LEED Silver certification.
The school, designed by DRA Architects and managed by Compass Project Management, was completed two months ahead of schedule.
