Compass is serving as Owner’s Project Manager for the new Alma del Mar II Charter School Project. Alma del Mar was established and opened its doors in August 2011 in a former New Bedford district building, the Sarah D. Ottiwell School. After significant growth, Alma del Mar applied for additional charter seats to open two new schools. The application was approved and Compass was hired as the Owner’s Project Manager to work with the Alma del Mar Team to build their first building, the Ottiwell Campus, located at 515 Belleville Avenue, which opened in 2016. Building on the success of the first project, Compass is now working with the Alma del Mar Team on their expansion, the Fredrick Douglass Campus, located at 739 Church Street in New Bedford. The anticipated $24M, 52,000 square foot building will be located on a four-acre site and will house 600 K-8 students.
