Clark Avenue School | Chelsea, MA

Pinck & Co. was OPM for the Feasibility and Schematic Design study, supported by MSBA funding, for this 160,000 SF middle school.  The team presented a ‘Preferred Schematic Report’ to the MSBA which recommended new construction for the project, an option which is being phased in order to provide for the continuous operation of the school.  Phase 1, which includes classrooms and a cafeteria, began in July 2015 and will continue for 18 months.  Phase 2, which includes a gymnasium, performance spaces and specialty classrooms, will begin in January 2017 and continue for 19 months.  When completed, the new school will house 670 students, grades 5-8, and include 23 classrooms, specialty spaces, new gymnasium, cafeteria and lobby.
