Compass served as Owner’s Project Manager for the Town of Seekonk’s newly completed expansion to the Mildred H. Aitken Elementary School. The project entailed a new, state-of-the-art 14,000GSF, single-story, 10 classroom addition along with a new playground, outdoor classroom, maker space and select mechanical/plumbing renovations to the existing School. The Town embarked on this project to manage space constraints throughout their elementary school program. Construction was completed in March of 2021, two months ahead of schedule. The project was an addition to an occupied and functional school and operations were maintained during construction. Planned ti-ins to the existing building were carefully coordinated so as not to disturb the function of the school. Compass worked closely with the school to develop safety protocols to accommodate parent and bus circulation around the construction. Compass also assisted the school in developing safety protocols to allow for the construction to move forward without delay during the COVID-19 pandemic.
