Building for the Future

‚ÄčElementary Schools Building Project

In 2017, following the School Facilities Master Plan completed the previous year, the Town of Watertown and the Watertown Public Schools started a major planning effort to renovate or replace the three existing elementary schools. Ai3 Architects was hired early in the year to assist with this planning. On July 27, Ai3 presented to a joint meeting of the School Committee and Town Council an overview outlining how the three elementary schools might be undertaken as one construction project. On August 14, the School Committee voted to proceed with a feasibility study for this major project. Supporting this action, on October 24, the Town Council approved funding for Daedalus Projects, Inc. to serve as the Owner's Project Manager. On December 12, the Town Council approved funding to hire Ai3 as the Architectural Designer for this project.

Watertown High School Building Project

The Town of Watertown and the Watertown Public Schools are planning for extensive renovations or replacement of the High School. Built in 1929, Watertown High School is one of the oldest school buildings in the district. In December, 2017, after the fourth year of submitting a Statement of Interest, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) accepted Watertown into their Core Building Program. This action started a multi-year process in which Watertown and the MSBA will undertake a major renovation or replacement of the High School. A School Building Committee was created in March, 2018, to oversee this process as well as the Elementary Schools Project.
