Boston – Shawmut Design and Construction received the Associated General Contractors 2013 Build New England Award alongside HMFH Architects, KVA Associates, and representatives from the town of Wayland for their work on Wayland High School. The team was on hand at the AGC’s Annual Construction Gala at The Intercontinental Hotel in Boston to accept the award.
The Build New England Award is a juried program that recognizes exceptional teams that construct projects around New England. The award is designed to bring public awareness to the positive contributions of the building industry and recognize the collaborative efforts essential to successful completion of the facilities people use every day.
The Wayland High School project included 154,350 square feet of new construction and 40,800 square feet of renovation. Shawmut built two new structures on existing parking lots and renovated the school’s field house. The team also constructed a new wastewater treatment plant that services only the high school. All of this work was completed over 27 months while the original buildings were still occupied, and the team remained mindful of the environmentally sensitive wetlands and public water supply adjacent to the site.
