Holden, MA – CTA Construction announced the completion of three new athletic fields at the recently constructed Mountview Middle School.
The completion of a new soccer field, a new softball field, and a new baseball field, located on the site of the former school, is part of the second phase of the $35.2 million school construction project.
In October, CTA Construction and the town of Holden held a dedication ceremony for the new middle school, which was designed by Lamaroux Pagano Architects. The new building consists of two sections. The first is a three-story structure with classrooms, science labs, art rooms, media rooms, administrative and faculty offices, and workrooms. The second is a one- and two-story structure with the cafeteria and kitchen, gymnasium and locker rooms, music classrooms, and the mechanical and maintenance facilities.
Mountview Middle School is seeking CHPS certification under the Massachusetts Collaborative for High Performance Schools program — a sustainable green construction program authorized by the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The program places emphasis on reducing energy and water consumption.
The Mountview Middle School was built utilizing design/bid/build, a competitive procurement process known for its ability to generate maximum value and cost savings for communities. The project is currently estimated to be $8 million under budget.
“It’s exciting to finish and deliver these new fields that will be a tremendous asset to students and the entire community,” said Lyle Coghlin, project executive at CTA Construction. “The Mountview Middle School is the largest town building project in its history, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to partner with the community and deliver this school and athletic fields on time and under budget.”
