Dimeo Construction Company completes Grafton High School, Grafton, MA. This new 186,000 sf high school houses 900 students, with a capacity to expand the population to 1,100. The project is located on the existing 46 acre high school site so great care and planning was taken place to segregate the work site from the occupied campus. The building provides for a controlled entry that opens into the Dining Commons, with administration, health services and guidance grouped together along the front of the building. The gymnasium and related areas are located to the left of the dining commons; the auditorium to the right and the Library Media Center overlooking the commons. The majority of the academic spaces are located in (one) three story and (one) two story “pod”. These pods include classrooms ringing central areas that serve a variety of teaching activities and disciplines including Large Group Instruction; computer labs, media lab and other spaces. Special education spaces are integrated across both academic pods taking into account proximity to general classrooms and the unique needs of the programs within the school.
