Harwich, MA – Coreslab Structures (CONN) Inc. is fabricating the high-performance, architectural precast concrete cladding on the new Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich. Construction started in January 2019.

Upon completion, the new school will be a 214,000sf facility spanning over the 67-acre site. It is scheduled to be ready for the 2021 school year. The old school will then be demolished to make room for parking and sports fields.

Architectural firm Drummey Rosane Anderson (DRA) worked closely with the district and performed comprehensive assessment of the existing conditions of the school and the educational programs. Their goal for the new Cape Cod Technical High School is to provide 21st century learning to the students and to support the new educational philosophy for career and technical education.

The existing school was originally constructed in 1975 and serves grades 9-12. The new school design will group academic spaces around each technical discipline to foster a sense of community and collaboration.

The conceptual design features two wings of academic classrooms and a large space for vocational shops with additional height and access for the construction and transportation shops.

Construction is currently underway on the new school.

The new school will be 6,000sf larger than the current building and will house approximately 650 students. The design includes 22 general classrooms, two small group flex spaces, six science classrooms with labs, two art maker spaces and 17 vocational-technical shops and classrooms.
