Stoneham Middle School; Stoneham, MA

The Town of Stoneham undertook a project to replace the oversized and outdated middle school which serves grades 6-8. NV5 was engaged as the OPM to perform a preliminary feasibility report prior to selection of an Architect. This included a comparative analysis of eight alternative site locations and two different grade configurations. NV5 collaborated with the Town to select two options for further evaluation in the Feasibility Study Phase. An Architect was engaged, and the team undertook further investigation which allowed the Town to identify a clear preferred option; to create a new middle school serving grades 5-8 on the same site. This strategy allowed the Town to re-purpose an existing adjacent elementary school and build a modest-sized addition to create a very cost-effective new facility that reduces future operating expenses.
