New Bedford – New England construction management firm Dellbrook|JKS continues construction at the 52,000sf K-8 Alma Del Mar Frederick Douglass Campus as steel framework arrives and design plans by Arrowstreet are announced.
The new campus, which currently sits on a four-acre site, will feature new classrooms, a 4,500sf gymnasium, cafeteria with servery, offices, and support spaces. Exterior work includes a parking lot, pickup/drop off area, playground, and outdoor recreational and classroom space.
Most of the foundation has been poured and steel framework will be complete within the next few weeks. Steel siding will be installed, with a mixture of steel and wooden skin as the facade.
“It’s been a pleasure to partner with Compass Project Management and Arrowstreet on this project,” said Carolyn Kimball, Dellbrook|JKS project manager. “It’s great to see everyone contribute their own unique experience and collaborate to create the highest value school for Alma.”
The project was designed and will be built utilizing extensive sound control measures to eliminate ambient city noise and will feature environmental graphics that will cost effectively enliven the interior spaces.
The building is expected to be completed by January 2022.
