Following a district-wide Facilities Master Plan, Tecton provided conceptual design options, referendum support and State grant application assistance to the Town for a new Huckleberry Hill Elementary School. Tecton was selected to move forward with design and construction administration services for the remainder of the project, scheduled to complete construction in 2022.

 

Design Highlights:

 

  • Design integrates with a complex site, making use of hills and wetlands as a teaching opportunity
  • Early Childhood Center for grades Pre-K to 1st, with separate entry and drop-off
  • 5th Grade Academy, to help prepare older children for transition to middle school
  • Consolidated public spaces, including cafeteria, gymnasium, kitchen, lockers/showers and multi-purpose space for community use
  • Enclosed courtyard to provide protected outdoor spaces
