Hardy/Upham Projects: Schedule
The project team has created a detailed work plan for the School Building Committee and other users, to track key meeting dates and topics to be covered, leading to the submission of the Preferred Schematic Report.
Due to COVID the Feasibility Study timeline has been extended by at least 6 months. The SBC is targeting finalizing the option recommendation in fall of 2020 to submit to the MSBA.
The Hardy/Upham Elementary School projects have been invited into the MSBA capital pipeline. The MSBA process has prescribed steps that control and extend the schedule when compared to a feasibility study lead in a local only process. The Hardy/Upham projects will follow the MSBA and Town process for a feasibility study.
The image below shows the currently anticipated time line for the Hardy/Upham School projects.
Funding approval for this project is scheduled for late fall 2021. The schedules below depict the two options that do not require swing space where the new school is built behind the existing school. The construction duration at both sites is anticipated to last 19 months. The Upham site requires construction to be proceeded by 2 months of sitework including tree and ledge removal. Construction is estimated to begin July 2023.
The Upham site estimated move-in date could be April 2025. Abatement, demolition of the existing school and site work would continue for 6 months after the new building is occupied.
The Hardy site estimated move-in date could be February 2025. Abatement, demolition of the existing school and site work would also continue for 6 months after the new building is occupied.
