Updates from 1/12/23 Building Committee Meeting

During the Andover High School Building Committee Meeting on 1/12/2023, PMA Consultants (Owners Project Manager) presented an update of the draft Feasibility and Schematic Design timeline, and an overview of the cost analysis/cost estimating process during both design phases.

HMFH Architects (Project Designer) also provided a Feasibility Study design update, include the design progression of the 3 site approaches that were selected for further development during the last Building Committee meeting on 12/20/2022.

These 3 approaches include the:

  • Courtyard Approach (Addition/Renovation)
  • Campus #2 Approach* (New Construction)
  • Standalone Approach* (New Construction)

* Both the Campus #2 and Standalone Approach will include options to renovate the existing Collins Center or construct a new auditorium.

Concept images of the design approaches are below, and each is explained in more detail within the full 1/12/2023 SBC presentation (beginning on slide 21).

Discussion also took place around three areas that continue to inform design options (click links for further detail):
