Boston – In 2021, three new school campuses designed by Warner Larson Landscape Architects welcomed students back following the pandemic shutdown, taking full advantage of their new outdoor learning and recreational spaces.
Billerica Memorial High School features a dedicated pedestrian promenade with an integrated bicycle path that connects to all facilities without crossing any driveways. The project team included Perkins & Will, architect; Leftfield, owner’s project manager; and Shawmut Design and Construction, construction manager.
Stoughton High School leveraged CPA funds to include the Knights Walk pocket park, pavilion and sports lighting to complete the vision and program for this new high school. DRA Architects was the architect on the project; Compass Project Management (a Vertex company) was the owner’s project manager; and Consigli Construction Co. was the construction manager.
Clyde Brown Elementary School in Millis consolidated Article 97 parkland and reorganized school property to nestle the new 2-story building into a wooded knoll, allowing multiple outdoor classrooms at both levels. The project team included Tappe Architects, architect; Compass Project Management, owner’s project manager; and Agostini Bacon Construction, construction manager.
