This project consisted of a series of renovations to the existing 210,000 sf Foxborough High School. The work included replacing the existing HVAC equipment with high efficiency systems, new roof, replacing windows, electrical upgrades, a new fire alarm system, replacing the gym floor, accessibility requirements and asbestos abatement.

Also included were renovations and upgrades to the science labs, in part due to accreditation. This work included reconfiguring the labs to “clabs” or classroom labs with interactive white boards, digital projection and sound systems, increased seating capacity, new ventilation and new safety systems.

Work occurred while the building remained in use and occupied by students and teachers. Upon completion, one key result will be energy savings estimated to be 39%, or $128,400 per year based on the current energy costs.
