New Bedford, MA – Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS), has named the CMS, Construction Monitoring Services, Inc. to lead the renovation project of the building located at 106 Bullard St. in New Bedford creating “One School, One Campus.”
The One School, One Campus project will lead to the rehabilitation of an additional three story 18,132sf building for GLCPS students, staff and community members. This project will allow GLCPS to reallocate classroom space and offer students an education experience that remains rich in technology and on the leading edge of education innovations. The expanded classroom space will feature science labs, dedicated art and music space, foreign language classrooms, multi-use classrooms and teacher and community collaboration space. The renovation will also include necessary upgrades to bring the building up to code. Prior to the 2019-2020 school year, GLCPS was split between two campuses, approximately 2 miles apart, creating a travel interruption during the school day for high school students that split their time between both campuses
The buildings are on a 25-year lease, including a 5-year extension option, with the Diocese of Fall River. The new lease includes both the current main campus building located at 190 Ashley Boulevard and the addition of the adjacent former St. Anthony’s convent building.
