Kaestle Boos completed an existing conditions and feasibility study of Bay Path Regional Vocational High School, which serves 10 districts in Massachusetts, to determine the needs of the building and develop solutions to accommodate their growing vocational program, academic classrooms, student population, and make the facility more energy efficient. The study included evaluation of the building envelope, interior systems and finishes, code compliance and site conditions. The preferred design solution includes a new 50,000 s.f. academic wing, new science labs, HVAC, electrical, and fire protection upgrades, roof and window replacement and masonry repairs, and appropriately sized trade shops. In addition, code compliance improvements including building code and accessibility are being completed throughout the remainder of the 198,000 SF facility. Energy efficiency upgrades improved daylighting into the building core, replacement of windows and doors, and new high-efficiency lighting fixtures. The project is scheduled for completion in October of 2015.
