Private School Campus

A renovation of a 10-acre campus supporting a student population of 330. The solution married buildings built at five different times providing accessibility, improved pedestrian flow, and increased parking within a natural setting in a way that respected the historic school building. Redniss & Mead, Inc. was the lead consultant for a permit process that included applications to and appearance before the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency, Architectural Review Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, and Planning & Zoning Commission receiving approvals to convert an existing gymnasium into a 400-seat Performing Arts Center. Design responsibilities included utilities, grading, sediment and erosion controls, and a stormwater management system incorporating low impact development techniques to manage both water quantity and water quality. The process required careful coordination with the local Department of Public Works and out-reach to the neighbors concerned about legacy traffic and parking operations.
