Educational Space Adequacy Assessment
Educational Program Analysis
Facilities Condition Assessment
Habeeb & Associates Architects conducted a Master Plan for Scituate Public Schools to assess the educational program and physical condition of the district’s elementary schools. The study identified short-term and long-term capital improvements with associated costs necessary to maintain and upgrade the facilities.
Six options were presented to aid in determining whether to renovate, consolidate, and/or build a new school. The options heavily considered the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) guidelines in conjunction with Scituate’s educational programming needs.
H&A examined Scituate’s Educational Program for the following:
Recommended operating capacity for each school
Considerations for parity of programs across schools
Provisions for technology advancements
Elements to provide flexible learning environments in support of innovative and authentic learning
The Physical Conditions Assessment addressed:
Square foot totals and cost estimates for all upgrades and new construction
Opportunities to address energy efficiency
State, local and federal code and regulation requirements
Environmental and health concerns
