The new 322,000 sf, MSBA-funded co-located Middle and High School is part of the 65+ acre St. George Street campus and replaces both the existing Duxbury Middle and High Schools.
The 1,700 student school includes a three-story High School wing which houses typical and specialized High School learning areas as well as High School administration; it also includes a three-story Middle School wing that contains Middle School administration as well as typical and specialized Middle School learning areas arranged in teams. This configuration allows for two teams per grade and one grade per floor, a spine concourse, and the one, two and three-story “core plus” wing, which houses shared spaces for athletics, the arts, cafeteria and media center.
BIM was used for spatial coordination of MEP/FP systems to improve installation and reduce rework.
Phase Two of the project included abatement, demolition of the existing schools and the creation of new playing fields.
