Waltham, MA – Multimarket construction management firm Delphi Construction has broken ground on a new visual and performing arts center at Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School, a coeducational preparatory school located in Waltham.
The $5.5 million project designed by Costa Architects encompasses 9,000sf of new construction integrated with a historically significant original building which will be renovated and modernized as part of the project.
Features will include a new theater, new music classroom space, expanded state-of-the-art studio spaces, and a glass atrium gallery. The completed project will bring the total space of the visual and performing arts center known as “The Barn” to 22,000sf.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the school on August 29. Construction will be completed in the fall of 2019.
“Delphi is proud to have been selected to help bring the school’s vision to life. We look forward to continuing to work closely with our design-side partners to deliver a final product that exceeds expectations,” said Keith Shaw, COO of Delphi Construction.
“This project is a perfect fit for our team with its historic preservation component and new construction requirements. We know the reimagined facility will meet the evolving needs of students while preserving the distinctive character of the campus,” Shaw added.
