Compass is serving as Owner’s Project Manager for the Town of Wellesley for the new Kindergarten – 5th grade Hunnewell Elementary School. The new school will house 365 students and will offer STEAM Lab, Gymnasium, Art, Music and Media Centers to support all students. This project includes Wellesley Public School’s Therapeutic Learning Center (TLC) program. The Therapeutic Learning Center program is an academic and therapeutic program for students who have difficulty with social problem solving, inadequate conflict resolution skills, ongoing inability to maintain safety with self/others, and/or are behaviorally or emotionally dysregulated and have significant difficulty accessing the general education classroom.

The building is being designed to be net zero ready, including an all-electric mechanical system and capacity on the roof for photovoltaic panels. There will be no natural gas on this project, but there will be a diesel generator to support the all-electric mechanical systems in the event of a power outage. The landscape will include new playground and walking paths that lead to adjacent network of brook paths in Town.
