The Framingham High School Project involves the $54.4 million renovation and expansion of the 37-year-old facility located in Framingham, Massachusetts. Framingham High School is one of the largest high schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Plans submitted for state approval in June 2001 include:
  • Tripling of library floor space, and upgrade of technology resources to meet state and New England Association of Schools and Colleges accreditation requirements.
  • 16 new science rooms fully equipped for 21st century science classes. Reallocation/conversion of some existing science rooms, and unsuitable, unused industrial arts areas.
  • Upgraded ventilation, heating, plumbing, and electrical systems.
  • Replacement of inefficient or faulty doors, windows and roofing systems.
  • Compliance with ADA regulations.
  • Wiring of building for technology upgrades required by the state Department of Education.
  • An improved main entrance of school and direct community access to the new library.

Actual construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2002. Once the additions are constructed and adjacent area renovated, wings of the high school will be systematically closed off one by one for renovation starting in the fall of 2000. Completion of the project is expected in January 2005.

To support the project, Environmental & Construction Management Services, Inc. (ECMS) was retained by project architect DiNisco Design Partnership, Limited of Boston, Massachusetts to conduct an comprehensive investigative survey for asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP) and Construction Administration in the areas of proposed renovation. Our scope of services included all hazard assessments, remedial design, and construction management activities related to asbestos-containing materials and lead-based paint.

ECMS provided hazardous material abatement design plans and specifications necessary to facilitate the renovations required, project administrative and construction management support including compliance supervision, inspections of contractor activities, and air quality monitoring during abatement operations from 2002 to 2005.
