Medford, MA, United States, 2009/03/10 - Delta Design & Construction is a full service General Contractor specializing in Education, Restaurant/Retail and Commercial projects - DeltaConstruct.com.
Delta Design & Construction has been awarded a $1.7M new construction and renovation project at Oak Meadow Montessori School in Littleton, MA.
Oak Meadow Montessori School, founded in 1977, is a not-for-profit independent school and enrolls 270 students age three through grade eight.
The scope of work will involve the addition of a 7000sf expressive arts center and gymnasium. The combined arts and cultural center will be acoustically isolated from the gym by a sliding partition wall. This project will create a large meeting space where, for the first time the entire school can gather together. The increased space will allow for a greatly expanded arts, music and physical education program for the children. The renovation of the existing school will create additional library space for each age group of students and new office space for the faculty and admissions staff. “The design idea behind this project was to create multiple uses for each new space, allowing for the most effective use of the budget, while expanding on the school’s desire to offer arts and expressive activities throughout the daily curriculum”, commented Patti Seitz, of Seitz Architects.
“As per design, we will be including super high insulation throughout the project as well as ultra efficient heating systems. We’re installing energy saving lighting and lighting controls and will achieve maximum use of day lighting”, said Tony Pagano, project manager for Delta. On the exterior of the building there will be a Peace Garden created for the students, faculty and staff. This garden will have seating and will be protected by building on all sides. One of the features of this garden will showcase a rain garden which will recycle the rain run off from the roof into native plantings that surround the building.
The fast track project will break ground in early March and will be completed in an aggressive 24 week schedule. This project is largely funded by a fundraiser that was initiated by the parents of Oak Meadow students.
