Abington, MA – Cogswell Sprinkler Co., Inc. of Worcester, recently completed the fire protection installation work at the new 235,370sf Abington Middle High School.
General contractor for the project was Brait Builders of Marshfield.
The new LEED Silver-certified building will feature a western wing for grades five through eight, an eastern wing for grades nine through 12, a segregated area of preschool classrooms, two cafeteria eating areas sharing one kitchen, a 750-seat auditorium/performing arts center, and a gymnasium.
Taking advantage of the sun’s free energy and light, with large windows throughout the building, the building will collect rainwater for reuse in the restrooms, and the site will have solar panels to serve the building’s electrical needs.
Safety and security features were also designed into the entire building. Cogswell Sprinkler’s contribution included the installation of wet and sry type sprinkler systems.
Cogswell’s project manager, Mike O’Donoghue, and sprinkler foreman, Ken Barch, worked with the Brait Brothers’ team to bring this project to completion ahead of schedule.
