Updates from 1/26/23 Building Committee Meeting with the Landscape Architects

During the Andover High School Building Committee Meeting on 1/26/2023, PMA Consultants and HMFH Architects presented an update of the draft Feasibility and Schematic Design timeline.

The Landscape Architect, Arcadis|IBI Group presented preliminary landscaping configurations for each remaining site approach and overviewed the following considerations for each:

  • traffic flow (cars and buses)
  • parking (surface parking vs garage, with the Building Committee awaiting cost information before making a recommendation as to whether to include a parking structure in the scope of a future project)
  • sports fields (count and orientation)
  • a comparison of each approach against the proposed athletic programs/existing conditions

Additional potential site amenities such as tennis courts, basketball courts, skate park, and outdoor learning spaces were also discussed.

The following graphic summarizes the 3 remaining site approaches:
