CTA Construction Participates in Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New Leroy Wood Elementary School, Fairhaven, MA
The school is the most economically constructed in Massachusetts since 2004
Waltham, MA (I-Newswire) September 16, 2013 - CTA Construction participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new, 78,000 square foot "model" school, the Leroy L. Wood Elementary School, constructed within 14 months. This $20 million school is situated at the site of the formerly overcrowded and inadequate Wood Elementary School which was demolished prior to the start of construction.
Students in the new Fairhaven Pre-K to Grade 5 School will now enjoy a library filled with light, full-sized cafeteria/kitchen and gymnasium, as well as specialty classrooms -- music classrooms with instrument storage, computer classroom dedicated art classroom, and a project room designed to accommodate science and other messy, hands-on exploration. This energy-efficient new building is oriented to take advantage of day-lighting through skylights and classroom windows, and the artificial lighting is designed to dim automatically when there is sufficient daylight. This building not only participates in the Massachusetts Collaborative for High Performance School (MA-CHPS), but holds the distinction of being the most economically constructed new school in the Commonwealth since 2004.
The project architect is HMFH Architects, Inc. and the owner's project manager is Daedalus Projects, Inc.
